    WDS Image import to SCCM 2012

    Hi All,

    I have just recently moved over to SCCM 2012 but I have the old WDS .wim images of current laptops/computers that i want to import into SCCM 2012 so that I can use those as well as setting up new task sequences for new laptops.

    How would I go about doing this?

    Thanks in advance

    You don't need to do anything special.

    Copy the WIM to a file share.
    Add it as an operating system image in your SCCM console
    Distribute it to a DP group
    Create a task sequence or edit an existing task sequence to use it.
    Deploy the task sequence to a collection

    You shouldn't need to do anything to the WIM itself, it should just work.

    /edit

    Assuming that you're using Windows Vista or above and that you sysprepped the machine using the /generalize switch, you don't need to have an image per hardware platform. Add your drivers to SCCM and let SCCM sort it out.

    Thanks I will give that a go,

    We have windows 7 but at the moment not all of our software and drivers are within SCCM so was trying to see if I could do the way as I said as a bit of a short cut before all our software is within SCCM

    I'd add drivers to SCCM as well. It's not a hard process. You can just dump all of them into a folder structure and get SCCM to sort through them and add them to its repository. It's well worth the effort.
