    SCCM 2012 Image Capure help

    Hi, I am very new to SCCM and I am struggling through it to be honest. I have used MDT in the past but want to go fully over to sccm2012 for all our imaging.

    My situation is that we have 40 W7 PCs in our ICT Labs and I want to capture an image of one of our existing PCs in the Labs so I can deploy out should 1 break etc.

    Our ICT labs contain a lot of programs so putting out a bare window7 build then deploying apps and updates isn't really an option.

    Is there a way to cope with this scenario in SCCM.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Yep, just grab an image of a machine with all yours apps. If you use the capture media button under the OSD section of SCCM it will let you create a WIM file from the install. With that WIM file you make your Task Sequence, then you can deploy it to other machines.

    @TheScarfedOne does MDT make a WIM file? Maybe he could nick that?

    Better still, integrate MDT with SCCM...

    Advanced Deployment - Part One / Part Two

    First, you should ALWAYS use MDT for building and capturing the master images of Windows operating systems that you plan on deploying to computers in your environment. The main reason for this is that with MDT you can preconfigure the default user profile to customize the desktop of the user who will be using the computer you're deploying Windows onto. That's because with MDT you can configure user settings for the built-in Administrator account and then use the CopyProfile setting during deployment to make these the Default User settings on the target computer.

    Why does CopyProfile work with MDT but not with SCCM? Because during Lite Touch Installation (LTI) MDT runs its task sequence in the context of the built-in Administrator account while SCCM runs its task sequence in the context of the LocalSystem account. Now you could actually make CopyProfile work with SCCM deployments if you wanted to, but it takes a lot of painful scripting to do this, so why bother if MDT already does it so easily?
    Skip to 22:09 in the video below for a few more reasons.

    I've only started looking at this recently. I think you have to add applications within sccm. Then they have to be added to the task sequence. Unless there is a sysprep and capture task sequence.
