Preparing to capturing an image
You can run the Prepare for Image Capture task to get ready to capture a disk image.
See About deployment tasks and jobs.
See About Imaging client computers.
For Windows, this task uses Sysprep to remove the computer name (SID), the operating system license, and some hardware-dependent drivers. You should always run this task before creating a disk image and if you want to use DeployAnywhere for hardware independent imaging. Sysprep also disables the built-in administrator account and clears the admin password. For Linux, this task runs a preimage script to remove the configuration-related settings and prepare the computer for imaging.
