Vista - Sysprep (WAIK)
Posted on 2009-04-16
We are looking at doing some Vista deployments, In the past with XP we would sysprep a base image and include everything needed (drivers for multiple machines etc) in the sysprep.inf file. I am having a difficult time understand all this WAIK stuff and the WSIM. I have our XP image able to go on any hardware installation we have, Im very confused with VISTA however.
I have toyed around with WSIM making a simple answer file and plopping it into the sysprep folder, but Im completely lost on how this is actually going to apply to anything. The passes are confusing. We use a boot.wim for PXE environment on a network boot from our W2K8 WDS server. I have captured .wims of vista and xp but im completely LOST with Vista as far as sysprepping it and deploying it like we did with XP.
I've read all the technet etc on the deployment of vista but it seems to confuse me the more I read it. Maybe hearing it in a generalized term would help.
