I need to create an offline .wim file so that the images I create via sccm can be sent out via usb stick direct to our
pc suppliers who can ship the machines prebuilt to site.
I know how to capture an image, and upload to the server, and then redeploy out - pxe is working ok.
However for simplicity i want a solution whereby the image/.wim file is on a usb stick, and has directory of "drivers" on the same usb stick where the "base/golden" image is when installing onto new machine "out of the box" with our "corporate build" at the pc suppliers.
Once this is fixed, i would then only have to copy up new "drivers" to same usb stick/s with the "base/golden" image and the image would reference this directory and install the relevant drivers - i think via a wmi query?
I don't know how to do this but know that it is possible, but not done it before in win7 or xp.
The only thing that we will then need to be done once the p.c is delivered to site is for it to be added to the domain - we don't require this task to be added into this .wim file as it won't work as the pc suppliers won't have a network connection to our network to add the machine to the domain
Thanks for any replies in advance.
