SCCM 2007 capture custom image
Posted on 2011-02-15
I've been working with SCCM for a few months now but there has always been one thing bugging me about building and capturing wims.
Every walkthrough/tutorial I read regarding building and capturing a custom wim recommend you create a task sequence which installs your os, apps, customizes it in which ever way you want then captures it so it can then be deployed.. what I don't understand is...
1. Why can't you deploy the raw OS wim and add these customizations in the task sequence of the final build.. its effectively the same thing
2. Why can't you build up an OS install with customizations, sysprep it, boot into WinPE and capture it (I'd much prefer to do it that way, more control over image).
Thanks if anyone can shed some light on this!
