Trying to capture an Image of an existing machine using SCCM

I have an existing Vista client that has the SCCM client installed.  I would like to use SCCM to capture an Image of this machine without having to use Boot media.  In other words, I want to not have to touch the client.  I have set up a custom task sequence of a command line that reads c:\windows\system32\sysprep\sysprep /oobe /generalize /reboot /unattend:c:\unattend, and included an Image capture step.  When I advertise the task sequence to a collection which included just my one machine, nothing happens.  What am I missing?

Ooops, Sorry. Just re-read the boot media bit.

Out of curiosity why don't you want to use boot media?

Have a look at the task sequence on a standard MDT sequence. At the bottom there is a group that Captures the reference image.

In theory you could remove all of the other groups and tasks leaving just this group. As long as you have the required packages, MDT Files, Custom WinPE etc that you would normally create then you should be able to advertise that task sequence and get the desired hands off results.
