How to capture image of windows 7(I made some changes after installing win 7 on machine) on virtual machine hosted on hyper-V on local machine. I have Windows Assessment and deployment toolkit and I don't have my virtual machine on the same domain as my physical machine. So I am not using WDS or MDT. Any suggestions?
Please provide me with details steps please.

Thanks.

1. Create a share on the host machine
2. create a winpe iso
3. sysprep and shutdown the vm
4. attach the winpe.iso to the vm
5. change the boot options to have the dvd as the first item
6. boot the winpe iso
7. net use * \\hostmachine\share
8.  E:\imagex /compress fast /check /flags “Professional” /capture D: E:\install.wim “Windows 7 Professional” “Windows 7 Professional Custom”

What is your network switch?  It must be internal or External and not private
This is in your virtual machines network settings

It is external. The host machine and virtual machine are not in the same domain.

Using MDT we can capture image of virtual machine on the network by running litetouch.vbs.
