Reference image RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am really confused about the step which described in the below article for creating reference image .


    My requirement is to take a thick image ( from a physical machine  ,it is fully patched and installed around 15 apps)  and deploy to the same model physical pc's .

    The article recommend to use virtual machine  for creating reference image  to deploy  on physical machine . 

    Q1. What is  the definition or what is the  purpose of a reference image ? 

    Q2 .I really don't understand why  OSInstall=Y here in the rule .The question here why it should install an OS again If we are taking the Image for deployment .


    Priority=Default [Default] _SMSTSORGNAME=Contoso UserDataLocation=NONE DoCapture=YES OSInstall=Y

    Q3. Why the task sequence is standard task sequence . It must be Sysprep Task sequence ? 

    Please help
