Creating a Build and Capture TS with custom background and icons

Recommended Posts

I want to create a build and capture TS with custom backgrounds copied to the computer in a "C:\windows\web\wallpaper\" location and add the my computer icon, user files icon to the desktop. Along with customizing the start menu a little to minimize what is shown to the user. Is there a way to do this during the task sequence because unlike with MDT we aren't allowed to pause the TS during the process to edit the image before capturing?

I found that I could create 2 TS and make one build the image then make changes and then come back and finish it off by running the capture TS but don't really want to do this every time.

Thanks for the advice.

Yeah, this can easily be done if you know any scripting languages. You can write a batch file or a VBScript or something to do everything you just listed. Once you have the script working, just put it in a folder, make an SCCM package out of it, and set up your script to be ran from the Program in the package. Then just run that at the tail end of your OS deployment TS.

 

Since it's just a few posts down from this one, take a peek at the bottom of this post for an example: http://www.windows-noob.com/forums/index.php?/topic/3379-configure-default-user-profile-while-deploying-windows-7/

Ok, here is the scrip that I have created. But when this is ran in my TS nothing ever gets copied to my Image. I have created a Build and Capture TS with the scripted inserted after the Install Software process. I have created a package with the scripts and added the package to my DS. In the TS I am deploying Windows 7 x64 and have tried running the command line with Disable 64 bit file system redirection on and off.

echo.
echo Copy Default User Picture
echo.
rename "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\User Account Pictures\user.bmp" user.bmp.bk
xcopy /y user.bmp "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\User Account Pictures\"

echo.
echo Copy Default Background to location
echo.
xcopy /y CGPS_BG_WS.jpg "C:\windows\web\wallpaper\windows\"

echo.
echo Set Explorer View and Start Menu Options
echo.
regedit /s HKCU_Explorer_Advanced.reg

echo.
echo Set Media Player first Run preference
echo.
regedit /s HKCU_MediaPlayerFirstRun.reg

echo.
echo Set Default Icons on Destop
echo.
regedit /s HKCU_DefaultIcons.reg

 

Here is my error log from smsts.log
