MDT 2012: Capturing a Reference Image - Part II

I was asked if there was another way to do the sysprep and capture process within MDT 2012. I said to myself, Heck! Yeah! There are several ways to do this, so this blog is a part II of Episode 12 on my BJTechNews Channel.

While you could use MDT 2012 to install all the software needed, or even group policy, imagine the time this would take and therefore the amount of time that PC would be sitting there installing software rather than using it :).

The simple way around this is to create a reference image of a PC and then capture an image of it to install onto all your other computers [lazy; but it works :)]. With MDT 2012 this is a very simple task and here’s how to do it.
