  • If I am creating a  base  image  for a  specific  model  machine  do I need  to collect the  image  of that machine  or can   I  build a Windows 7  VM and  use  this  VM  as the  base  image  ?

  • Hi  scuba,

    Since WSUS forum is more related with WSUS server and Windows Update, and your issue may related with how to create a image.

    Here is something related with how to create a system image, for your reference:

    For more professional help, you'd turn to the related community about image or VM for better help.

  • Hi, 

    I read the  link but this  shows  how  to  create an  image  but not  associated to WSUS. I need to  understand   (wrt WSUS) how  to  create  an  image albeit :

    1. Create a base  image  for  each  computer  manufacturer  model ?

    2.  Create  one  base  image  and   create  driver  groups  for each model ( how this  is done   on WSUS  Server)

    3.  Can a virtual base  be  created  or  I need to  create the  base  image  with a  physical  machine 

    Thanks

  • Hi scuba,

    According to your description, I think you are talking about the function of the WDS server. WSUS server is used to deploy updates for clients, WDS server can create a image.

    Here is a blog about creating a capture image in WDS:

    And WDS forum link:
