At this time, all of the preparation is complete and it is time
to actually perform the 3 imaging processes.
The first step is to actually capture the drivers for the various
hardware types you own. You will need to run this job on one of
every model computer you intend on imaging. This step must be
run on machines that are a member of the same domain as the DS, or
an error will be generated. Each time it is run, drivers
will be captured for each device and then sorted for later use.
The driver collect process will update
HII\<OS>\syspmsd.inf with the Mass Storage Drivers. You will
need to replace the [SysprepMassStorage] section of your
sysprep.inf file(s) with the contents of this file after you have
run the Collect Drivers job.
Once you have collected the various drivers necessary, it’s time to
actually create an image by assigning the “Create Hardware
Independent Image” job to a representative computer. More
information on how to create your base image can be found in
Distribute the Image:
Finally, you are prepared for deployment. All you have to do is
configure computers to receive the “Distribute Hardware
Independent Image” job. You may want to consider using things
like Initial Deployment for this. More information on how to
distribute images can be found in Best Practices.
