Custom install dvd



Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

is it possible to create a bootable CD/DVD of custom XP image(currently in wim format) for deployment offline? this is for sites with slow connection or not connected to network?

 

i know one can use imagex /apply commands, but is there any other way ?

 

Thanks

assuming you've followed my Deploy XP guide in SCCM then it's more than possible.

 

Add Operating System image

 

right click in Operating System deployment and choose add operating system image, browse to the network location of your captured XP wim image.

review the image details

click next next and close...

 

Duplicate the Task Sequence

 

Select your Deploy XP task sequence, right click it and choose Duplicate. Use the Duplicate Task Sequence for the following actions (this means we are making a copy of the original Task Sequence and editing the copied/duplicated one instead.)

 

Edit The Task Sequence

 

the Operating System Deployment section, right click on Task Sequences and choose to edit your Deploying XP task sequence.

 

look for this section in Apply Operating System

change it to Apply Operating system from captured image...

browse to the captured WIM file

click ok when done

Create Task Sequence Media

choose Stand alone media from the options

select your media type and give the ISO file a name

set a password to protect your media

select your task sequence

review the details

select the distribution points with all the packages required on them... [in this example there are 4 packages, and one dp has all 4 packages listed as 4 of 4...]

 

dist.jpg

 

so it looks like this

if you are using variables, then add them here

review the summary

the ISO file will be created...

and you are done, burn the ISO to DVD and and test it !

 

Can I read about this on Technet ?

When I want to create a task sequence media it says at the end that there is no more enough space while there is 60gb left on disk. Why is that? I tried DVD 4.7gb and 8.5gb but in my task sequence there's only winxp (max. 500mb), office2003 (max. 500mb), IBM client access (max. 400mb) and some other little programs.
