Senior Premier Field Engineer Justin Chalfant will review Microsoft best practices for creating reference images for use with MDT or Configuration Manager. We will review why MDT 2013 Update 1 is typically recommended by Microsoft for creating reference images with many points from this whitepaper: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn818437.aspx.

Topics covered will include:

  • Setting up MDT 2013 Update 1 deployment share
    • Review deployment share folder structure
  • Changing the CustomSettings.ini (Rules) to be tailored for build and capturing instead of deploying images
  • Adding the install.wim for Windows 10 ISO into MDT 2013 Update 1
  • Creating a build and capture task sequence for Windows 10
    • Adding a pause step to make default user customizations
    • Enabling Windows update steps
    • Installing applications
  • Whether to use Microsoft Updates or WSUS to install updates on your capture VM
  • Setting up WSUS to decline superseded updates to reduce the amount of update content downloaded
  • Setting up WSUS to automatically download any new updates for future months
  • Creating boot media for running your MDT build and capture
  • Running build and capture task sequence on client Hyper-V virtual machine
  • Q&A
