Create an OS Image in Windows Deployment Services (Capture Image)

Here I will show you how you can simply create a new Image in WDS (Windows Deployment Services). You can use this to create own Images for your Servers or PCs or update existing Images.

    Capture Image
  5. Now you can use the Image Capture Wizard

  6. Choose which volume you want to capture if you have just one partion in your installed Image the Volume would be D:\ (C: is the booted Windows PE from the Windows Deployment Service)
    Capture Volume
  7. Now you have to choose the name of the WIM file and the location, before you can upload it to the WDS Server you have to save it on a local partion. After that you can choose your WDS Server and the Image Group you want to upload the image after the Volume is captured.
