Systems Deployment Question


Create a USB image for off network use?

12/05/2018 784 views

Hello,


We currently have serveral computers at my company that are Windows 7 machines. They also happen to be off our network. Instead of shipping the computers back and forth, is there a way to create a USB drive that can allow us to image them remotely using an image we already created from the K2000? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

This is the Best guide for UEFI deployments from USB:

If you want to do legacy, follow the same guide, but format the USB in NTFS:

Make sure your Image doesn't have the Letter D: captured, it make things easier.

  • I am following the UEFI guide. I get to the "Create and Download USB Bootable System Image" section however when i create the bootable USB it get stuck on the being built section and I end up timing out. Do you happen to know where that is stored once it is done being built?
    • It should download a ZIP file automatically, make sure you are using version 5.1 or higher of the KACE SDA.
      • I was able to get the ZIP file downloaded. However I am now running into an other issue. When trying to deploy the image, I receive an error message when trying to get the computer name. Error is as follows


        Line 480 (File
        "K:\KACE\preinstall\8\GetComputerName_x64.exe"):

        Error: Array variable has incorrect number of subscripts or subscript dimension range exceeded.


        Any idea?

        Make sure you are not using the old version of get set computer name, also I'm assuming this is a x64 bits deployment.

        -Please create Get and Set tasks volume 2, and add those to your Image.
        -The instructions are inside the README file located in the ZIP folder.
        -You will need to rebuild the ZIP for download.
      • Hi Channeler,

        That fixed that issue however a new one came up and I cannot find anything about it online. It is now failing at applying the image with return code 6. The image itself works fine when imaging it normally. Any ideas?
      • You are following the UEFI guide right?

        So you are using 2 USB drivers.

        1- in the FAT32 containing just the KBE.
        2- in NTFS containing the Image and drivers
        3- Both of them are connected to the device, and you are booting from the FAT32 one

        Is that is true, what are your Pre and Mid Level tasks?
      • Yes, I am following the UEFI guide. I am booting to the FAT32 drive that just has the KBE on it. The NTFS only has the Image and Driver_PostInstall. Both are connected.

        The Pre tasks are Get_ComputerName x64 and then Create UEFI Partitions - S.WIM Error Fix in that order.

        The Mid tasks are Set_ComputerName x64 and Apply UEFI Partitions - S:\ Captured in that order.
