  • You can create a MDT Offline USB to deploy the image and input the required information during the MDT wizard. Check out this article by Johan (I know it is for Windows 8, but the steps to make it work for Windows 7 are basically the same).

  • Link works fine for me. Do an internet search for "Deploying Windows 8.1 from a USB Stick Johan"

  • Ok. I am able to view the link now.

    Thank you for your reply. After reading the article I'm still uncertain how I can deploy my custom WIM image (taken from reference computer) and only have task sequence to prompt for computer name and info to join domain?
