Image Capture/Computer Backup with MDT 2008
Posted on 2009-02-10
Here's what we want: To capture an image of an XP SP2 workstation and store it as a backup.
Here's what we did: We tried SMS OSD to capture an image, which we were successful in doing. However, when the computer reboots, it goes into a Windows Setup wizard, like you'd see if you just deployed an image to a computer. This is not something we want. I'm guessing this is from the image capture CD using Sysprep.
My question: Is there a better way to capture an image using MDT 2008 or something from Microsoft? If not, is there a way to make it so that after a successful capture of a computer, upon reboot, it doesn't go into a Windows Setup wizard, it just boots back up like it did before with no changes to the computer or the data on that computer?
