Capturing a reference image for Microsoft Deployment Toolkit

If you want to create a base Windows OS reference image to be used with the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit, you will want to follow these steps:

  1. Install the base Windows OS as well as all of the software required for the base Windows image
  2. From Windows Explorer, connect to the DeploymentShare path for Microsoft Deployment Toolkit
  3. Browse to the Scripts directory so that you can run the LiteTouch.vbs script
  4. Once you run the LiteTouch.vbs script, you can go through the Wizard prompts to perform a "Sysprep and Capture"
  5. This will then provide several other prompts which will Sysprep your target computer and then reboot to begin capturing the Windows image as a .WIM file and storing it in the Captures directory on your MDT DeploymentShare
  6. Once the .WIM file has been captured, you can import the .WIM file in MDT to use it as part of your MDT OS deployments!
