Created: 01 Jan 2013 | 6 comments

Hi

We have LENOVO T430 windows 7 x64 laptop.

We want to capture standard image of this particular laptop, what will be the requirement for this? Is there any specific pre-requisite for windows 7 x64 bit operating system or it will run same windows 7 x86 configuration.

To capture and deploy images you can use any Preboot OS, WinPE 32 bit, WinPE 64 bit or Linux. it's only for scripted installs that the Preboot OS has to match the OS being deployed.

Not sure how your other model works.

You need to install the Symantec Management Agent first with the Deployment Plug-in on the Factory image.

Then, after Prepare for Image Capture you need to run a Take Image Task.
