UPDATE 6/27/2011: Fixed yet more typos in the script.
Imaging ScriptsTo make my life a little easier, I decided to make some scripts to automate WIM image creation. Decided to share, because otherwise they aren't put to good use.
I mainly use these scripts to create completely updated Windows Vista and Windows 7 installations.
Steps I take:
1 - Create a new virtual machine in VirtualBox
2 - Install Windows 7 and WAIK onto machine
3 - Attach a new drive to the Windows 7 WAIK Machine
4 - Install OS onto the new drive
5 - Boot to the new OS
6 - Update new OS, run sysprep /generalize
7 - Boot back into WAIK Machine
8 - Configure "Step 1 - Configuration.cmd" script
9 - Run "Step 2 - CreateWIM" to create an image of the new OS
10 - Repeat steps 3-9 for the number of images I'm creating
11 - Run "Step 3 - CombineWims.cmd" to combine all images together
12 - Run "Step 4 - SplitWim.cmd" to make the image readable
13 - Create Unattended settings
14 - Run "Step 5 - Make ISO.cmd" to finally create a DVD
It helps to have multiple machines :-)
