I have been looking and unable to find an answer on my own for this question.  We prefer Scripted Installs to using Images, however images are great because we can load them on a USB Drive and image PCs offline or offsite where the network is very slow with them.  I am unable to find how to get a scripted install to run from a USB Stick for offline deployment.  Has anyone had any luck with this?

In order to do this you would need to copy the applications to the USB drive and then change the tasks.xml file to point to those installers instead of the network, or use the subst command so that the drive mappings point to the folders on the USB drive instead of what would normally be the network drives.

I think there is no way to deploy an Scripted Install from USB

You will need to harvest a System Image, and add to that USB drive:
-The KBE
-The Image itself (it will add the tasks you have in your deployment plan)
-The drivers for the targeted models

  • I had a feeling it would not be possible. I've made many System Image USB sticks, but would prefer to do a scripted install. Thank you.
