Windows 10 Image for Enterprise

    Question

  • I have been tasked with creating the Windows 10 image for our Company.

    I am planning to use the default WIM as thin image and then have everything in the task sequence and configuration via GPOs. Is this the correct approach?

    I also need to deliver the solution to other geographies to non English locations like Korea, Russia and Spain etc. What is the best approach?

    Please provide the input on creating VDI image as well.

    Can I just have one wim file to meet these three scenarios?

  • Yes, your thought(approach) is reasonable.

    If we want to customize an image file for enterprise, using original wim file is ok, after deployment, using GPOs to manage clients.

    Even though clients distributed in multiple countries, one image is enough, we just need to install corresponding language package for use, it’s easy to download and install via Windows Settings and Update, your user can do it by themselves.

    You could download original Enterprise edition iso image file from MSDN or VLSC, you need license to get it. When you get the iso, mount it and you will find the install.wim file, which is located in sources folder.

    Regards

    YES, deffenetly! You can use install.wim

    I would go with UDI and let it handle regionals and language packs.

    Please provide the input on creating VDI image as well.

    VDI is different, since you probably will be running it with VMware, Citrix or MS RDS? You could manipulate regions with GPO then. VDI has its own image creation process and sysprep is still important here. This is excelent stuff: https://thewolfblog.com/2014/03/26/deploying-vdi-for-rds-2012-2012r2-part-i/

  • Thank you, what is UDI?

  • "User-Driven Installation", look up the MDT, it's part of the toolkit and used to create interfaces for things like entering computer name, or Domain/OU, or checking hardware before an upgrade, etc...

    Use /vm switch with VDI: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/tip_of_the_day/2013/09/26/tip-of-the-day-syspreps-new-modevm-switch/

    With VDI, capturing image with SCCM is useless, I think.
