Now click on the check box next to Disable This Step and click OK to complete the configuration On the reference computer install all your necessary software and then run Sysprep, the sysprep application can be found in the C:\Windows\System32\Sysprep\ folder Select the options for OOBE (Out Of the Box Experience) and tick the Generalize option When the PC reboots ensure it boots to the network As it boots up you will now have another task sequence to choose from as well as your original Windows 7 deployment one, selecting the capture task you have created will start the process of capturing an image of your reference computer and uploading it to your deployment share In some network scenarios you can get an error message when capturing the image that references a blank UNC error.
Hi This blog post will be about what’s new in SCCM from the RTM og SCCM Current Branch to the Current SCCM 1607.
I was asked if there was another way to do the sysprep and capture process within MDT 2012. While you could use MDT 2012 to install all the software needed, or even group policy, imagine the time this would take and therefore the amount of time that PC would be sitting there installing software rather than using it🙂.
There are several ways to do this, so this blog is a part II of Episode 12 on my BJTech News Channel.
The next step is to create a task sequence that will capture an image from your reference computer Right click on the task sequence node and select New Task Sequence Complete all the information to identify this task sequence Select Sysprep and Capture from the drop down menu Select the operating system that will be used (this will not affect the image being captured) After accepting the defaults on the next screen complete all the relevant details on the OS settings screen Enter a password for the local administrator and click Next At the last screen check the summary and click Next to complete the task sequence In my experience the execution of the sysprep command from the task sequence is patchy, so to get around this issue you can follow these steps to disable the sysprep command in the task sequence and run it manually before capturing the image of the reference computer.
With MDT 2012 this is a very simple task and here’s how to do it.
