SCCM and Image X pc capture
Posted on 2010-08-27
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 ??
