I was looking at the plural sight windows 10 deployment videos, and it speaks of MTD to make the reference image with office 2016 already part of the image, and the latest windows update.

What is the process people are using here to create a reference image with the latest updates, and maybe even office 2016?

  • We use a VM as our golden image.
  • Can I reuse the golden image (.wim) back in a scripted installed in k2000? I was thinking MTD would make it easier to create this golden image?
  • I do not use Kace so I do not know. I create the images with VMware or Hyper-V and MDT. Nothing else is needed. You could import the captured .wim file into whatever deployment system you like.

MDT is the way to go to create reference images.

1. Use VMware Workstation or Hyper-V.

2. Install Windows, configure it, install office, patch it.

3. Create a snapshot then create a sysprep and capture TS to capture the .wim

4. Deploy the captured wim with SCCM or MDT.

That is the nutshell of it.

My older post is here for details. This will work with Windows 7/8/10.
