These actions include the following: Operating system images are WIM files and represent a compressed collection of reference files and folders that are required to successfully install and configure an operating system on a computer.
The operating system image is built and captured from a reference computer that you configure with all the required operating system files, support files, software updates, tools, and other software applications.
The default options included in file upon installation are only a small number of the variables which GRUB 2 can recognize.
The GRUB 2 defined variables can be identified using the command previously documented in the GRUB 2 Settings section or at the end of this section.
After you create your task sequences, you can deploy the task sequence to the collections that contain the destination computers.
Similar to other Configuration Manager content, the operating system image is distributed to the distribution point as a package.Configuration Manager provides a driver catalog that contains references to all the device drivers that you import into Configuration Manager.The driver catalog is located in the Software Library workspace and consists of two nodes: Drivers and Driver Packages.You can use System Center 2012 Configuration Manager Upgrade Assessment Tool to determine whether the operating system on computers that are managed by Configuration Manager can run Windows 7 or Windows 8.Download the Upgrade Assessment Tool from the Microsoft Download Center site.The Drivers node lists all the drivers that you have imported into the driver catalog.You can use this node to discover the details about each imported driver, to change what driver package or boot image a driver belongs to, to enable or disable a driver, and more.After you have created the reference computer and captured an operating system image from that computer, you can use a task sequence to configure how to deploy that image to a destination computer.For information about how you can use task sequences, see Planning a Task Sequences Strategy in Configuration Manager.When the package arrives at the distribution point, the content of the package is stored on the distribution point.For more information about operating system images, see Planning for Deploying Operating System Images in Configuration Manager.
