How to capture a syspreped image using PXE
Posted on 2010-11-29
We are using the latest version of Microsoft SCCM 2007 and Windows Seven Desktops.
So far have gotten our PXE infrastructure working ok. Using PXE we are able to capture and deploy images.
What I want to do is:
1. Build a refrence computer, make its settings the way we need them to be, then copy this profile to the "default user" profile so that anyone logging on to this machine will get these settings
2. Sysprep the machine (maybe use an answer file with that) and capture its image
I did my research and found out that the <copyprofile> <copyprofile> tag will let you copy the profile. I have done this succesfully. However my problem is as follows:
1. How do I JUST CAPTURE a syspreped image using SCCM ? I do not want to do a "Build and Capture" task sequence, I just want to do a capture as the image is already syspreped. Please note that I have tried using the Capture Media already, problem with Capture Media is that it runs sysprep of its own.
Please note that I have already tried deleting the "build" portion of the "build and capture" task sequence to see if it will work just to capture the machine, but it does not work and I get an error duing the capture process
Any help is appreciated
