Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT) Image Bakery

Alex Mags
Updating the disk images used by MDT I’ve been working on a project to set up an Amazon Web Services AMI bakery and thought its time to update the disk images used by Microsoft Deployment Toolkit too. The time to install patches during deployment was getting crazy. The process to update MDT images is: (PXE) Boot WinPE (from WDS server or some other TFTP source) Format and partition disk install OS install core software to be included in image (eg Office or SNMP), install updates (for OS and Microsoft apps) SysPrep Boot into WinPE & Capture image (WIM) Shutdown  Start with a regular client/server template and add a capture stage to the end of the task sequence.
