I want to be able to create a CD for new Window installations with custom settings and programs so that it saves time when installing Windows. I have read a couple of articles in technet that I will post below but they don't seem to be what I am looking for. Is there a simpler method or article? For example, I will want to have a custom Windows CD without all the pre-installed junk programs. I would like to have Office installed. I would like to have the latest Windows Updates. Maybe, if possible, have it connect the user to network shares and printers.
I tried this but when I tried to boot the reference computer to the flash drive it says it couldnt find an OS on it (missing system). I confirmed that I copied the files on it. I tried this twice - once when the drive was NTFS and the other in FAT32. This is where I got stuck. I also don't see an option to create a bootable installation DVD anywhere in the document.
I do not know the difference between these two (except on includes answer files).
