SCCM and Image X pc capture

Hi,

I don't want to use SCCM build and capture for this scenario. I want to boot using WinPE, use Image X to upload the WIMs to a share and deploy the WIMs using SCCM. The WIMs will also be sent to a manufacturer for imaging the new clients.

So far I have built my reference Desktop and Laptop. The Laptop has 2 partitions, 2GB for bit locker and the remaining for the installation and apps.

I have created 2 WinPE boot CDs with drivers for both computers. Next step is to run sysprep and then use Image X.

My question is how will I handle the 2 partitions on the Laptop ? Will Image X have to create 2 WIMs for the Laptop since it has 2 partitions ?

If that is the case would it be possible to create a WIM for the C Partition on the Laptop and then use a task sequence in SCCM for deployment, and partition the Laptop's hard-drive, make the 2 GB partition Primary and bootable and then install the WIM into the C partition ?

Now for the manufacturer....They will accept WIMs....Could I do the same and give them a WIM for the Laptop C partition and get them to create the partitions as they can do the partitioning also ?

Make sense ??

Yes you've to create to capture wim files. But if you want you can put e.g. the D:\ partition wim file into the C:\ partition wim file and point the SCCM Task Sequence to the D:\ drive wim file ;)

You're creating to wim files. ON for the C:\ and one for the D:\ partition.
In your SCCM Task Sequence you now create two partitions for both images.
Then you apply the operating system by applying the first wim file (path on your distribution point). You could now apply the second wim file also from your distribution point, or you already copied the second wim file into your first wim file and apply it from the local path
