Working with ImageX and Windows PE

This video walks the viewer through installing Windows Server Codename Longhorn and creating a bootable Windows PE disk with ImageX included. It then shows how to use the Windows PE image to boot up and create a file based image (WIM) of the Longhorn Server and finally, how to apply that image to a new machine.


Running Time: 18:50



The image creation process is covered through generalization with sysprep; next the system is booted to Windows PE where a WIM (file based image) of the computer is taken using ImageX and saved to a network location .


Finally, a new system is created and prepared with the diskpart utility within Windows PE where ImageX is again used-- this time to apply the previously taken image of Longhorn server to demonstrate its use. It should be noted that all of these steps also pertain to Windows Vista
