Help to Capture and Deploy image with SCCM 2012 SP1 through PXE?

Looking for some help/guidance from those who have been able to Capture an Image and deploy with SCCM 2012 SP1.
The guides I look up online do not match what I see.
For example, this site (www.toolzz.com/?p=879) tells me at one point after I've added the OS to capture (install.wim from a Win7 ISO), that I go and create a Task Sequence to build and capture image. I'm able to add the boot image at the first step, but when I go to add the OS, there are no OS's to choose from. Even though I can see the Operating System in Software Library, and it has been copied to the server successfully.

So is there any better guide that walks through how to do it?

Ideally I just want to do the following:

1. Configure a Dell laptop the way I want it
2. Reboot the Dell and PXE boot
3. Choose to capture the image of the Dell to the SCCM server
4. Be able to PXE boot another Dell on my network and image it via PXE from the image captured in step 3.

Then of course I could go on and try and accomplish installing Updates to the wim file  as MS releases those.

you forgot to add the software to the distribution point by #6 n the Configuration Manager console, navigate to Software Library, Operating Systems Images,  Right click the Image, choose Distribute Content,  Click Next and click Add, Distribution Point and choose you’re distribution point.

I did distribute I saw it was green/successful.

Problem is the latest guides are for SP1 beta, can't believe there's no more helpful info.

The Windows-Noob article here (http://www.windows-noob.com/forums/index.php?/topic/6353-using-system-center-2012-configuration-manager-part-7-build-and-capture-windows-7-x64-sp1/) advises if you' on SCCM 2012 SP1 to click to this thread (http://www.windows-noob.com/forums/index.php?/topic/6382-cannot-select-operating-system-installer/), which advises to add the install.wim.
But I already tried that.

Could I instead right-click "Operating System Installers" and add the path to the extracted Win 7 ISO then distribute that?

Wow that actually worked. I'm wondering if maybe I don't even have SP1 installed???
