Advertisement





It is helpful to capture windows with all installed software and deploy it in any blank/fresh PC so the new PC will be ready with pre installed software. This process skips hardware compatibility integration for different PC's.

Requirements: 

Windows PE disk. To know more about how to create WinPE disk follow this link.


Procedures for Windows Deployment:


Step 1: 

Create reference machine with all the required software. i.e. install all required software you need.(Note. do not use any running PC. use fresh one to avoid mistake)

Step 2: 

Remove the SID (Security Identifier) of reference/source PC. If you don't know then read how to remove SID.

Step 3: 

Now boot the PC with PE disk.

Step 4: 

Capture windows with IMAGEX tool

Go to Run >> type "CMD" and press enter
>> verify the windows drive
>> then go to CD Rom drive where imagex tool is already saved.

>> [cd rom drive]:\> imagex.exe [space] /capture[space][Windows drive i.e. the drive to be captured][space][destination drive]\[file.wim][space]"[image name of boot menu][space]compress[space]fast[enter]

For Example
D:\> imagex.exe [space] /capture [space]e:[space]c:\abc.wim[space]"Windows 7"[space]compress[space]fast[enter]

Step 5:

Start reference/source PC normally and put "*.wim" file in a shared folder.

Now mount the shared folder in this blank PC as a local drive/MAP drive

C:\> net [space]use [space]z: [space] \\192.168.0.1 \ test [press enter]
type user name: [computer name] \ user [press enter]
