  • Preparation Build Wizard Build Wizard Windows Media Settings Novell Client/Agent Build Process Image Novell Components Image Universal Image Universal Image Creation Process
  • Preparation Universal Base Image
    • The Universal Image should contain only Microsoft components.
      • Definition:
        • A universal image is compatible with many machine types and models, and will successfully boot the Operating System to a point that it may be further customized.
  • Preparation Universal Base image
    • Created in 3 simple steps…
      • Insert USB key containing Vista unattended installation files (created by Build Wizard)
      • Boot from Windows Vista media
      • When prompted, create ZENworks base image
  • Microsoft Hotfixes
  • Preparation Microsoft Hotfixes Zupdate Windows Base Line (Universal Image) Hotfixes Image Windows Update - or - WSUS
  • Preparation Microsoft Hotfixes
    • Zupdate is included in Imaging Tool
      • Zupdate will:
        • Run standalone, i.e. from USB pen-drive
        • Scan the local machine for required Microsoft Hotfixes
          • Using either Microsoft Update site or WSUS server
        • Download selected hotfixes
        • Create installation script (option to be silent or verbose)
        • Create hotfixes add-on image
