We have a fairly std environment, not a lot of customization is needed outside of group policy. We do like to run a few post install things such as setting up new folders etc. Can I use MDT to deploy the std WIM file straight off the ISO but also use the
task sequence and driver management capabilities of MDT?
Assuming the standard process is to deploy the OS, customize, and then capture, does MDT add stuff to the captured WIM that enables the task sequences to be used and can I add that manually?
As long as it's stand-alone MDT (aka LiteTouch) and not integrated into ConfigMgr (aka ZeroTouch), thae to my knowledegt the answer is yes because MDT actually runs setup.exe even for image deployment unlike ConfigMgr OSD which does not.
You should strongly consider adding updates to your image though to decrease deployment time and mitigate any risks during that actual build process. This is easily done using DISM (offline) or a build and capture task sequence.
