Windows ICD… MDT integration?

quand on lis le fichier d’aide on ne peut s’empecher de penser que l’ADK a absordé un epartie des fonctionnalités de MDT…en tout cas en premiere lecture, et snas pouvoir encore le lancer, voila ce que l’aide nous dit:

Build and deploy a Windows 10 image for desktop editions

[Some information relates to pre-released product, which may be substantially modified before it’s commercially released. Microsoft makes no warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information provided here.]

You can use Windows Imaging and Configuration Designer (ICD) to create a new Windows 10 Technical Preview for desktop editions (Home, Pro, and Enterprise) image and customize it by adding drivers, apps, language packs, settings, and more. You can also build the deployment media either to a folder or to a USB key.

Note  This imaging method requires a Windows image (Install.wim) file, which contains the base Windows image.

To build a customized Windows 10 Technical Preview for desktop editions image

  1. From the Windows ICD Start page, select New Project….

    Or, you can also select New Project… from the File menu.

  2. In the Enter Project Details window, specify a Name and Location for your project. Optionally, you can also enter a brief Description to describe your project.

  3. Click Next.

  4. In the Choose Workflow window, select Imaging from the list of available project workflows and then click Next.

  5. In the Imaging Methodology window, select Windows Desktop WIM-based image, and then click Next.

  6. In the Select Image window, click Browse to launch File Explorer. Search and locate the path to the Install.wim file.

    After you’ve selected the Install.wim file, all the Windows images in the .wim file are listed in the Select Image screen. By default, the first Windows image in the list is selected and the information about this image is displayed in the Image Information panel.

  7. Select the Windows image that you want to use and then click Finish.

    This loads all the customizations that you can configure based on the Windows edition that you selected. Once all the available customizations are loaded, you can see the Customizations Page.

  8. In the Customizations Page, select what you want to customize from the Available Customizations panel. This can include:

    • Applications
    • Drivers
    • Features on demand
    • Language Packages
    • MBS Driver Set
    • Settings
    • Windows Updates

    Note  The assets and settings available for customization depend on the Windows edition you selected from the previous step, so not all of these assets may be available.

    For more information about how to set the assets and settings, see Configure customizations using Windows ICD.

  9. After you’re done configuring your customizations, click Build.

  10. In the Select image format screen, select the image format for your build media:

    • WIM – Builds the image in a Windows image (WIM) file format. This option allows you to build the media to a local folder on your PC or to a network share, or to create a bootable media on a USB drive.

    • FFU – Builds the image in a full flash update (FFU) file format.

    Select WIM and click Next.

  11. Select the type of media that you want to create.

    • Folder Media – Creates a folder that contains the deployment media. The resulting media is not a bootable media and is not guaranteed to work on bootable drives.

    • USB Bootable Drive – Creates a bootable media on a USB drive.

  12. If you selected Folder Media in the previous step, enter or select the path for the deployment media.

    If you selected WIM in the previous step, Windows ICD detects all the available USB drives attached to the host PC and lists these in the Output Drive drop-down list. If Windows ICD doesn’t detect any USB drives, attach a USB drive to your PC and click Refresh.

  13. Click Build to start building the image. The project information is displayed in the build page and the progress bar indicates the build status.

    If you need to cancel the build, click Cancel. This cancels the current build process, closes the wizard, and takes you back to the Customizations Page.

  14. If your build fails, an error message will show up that includes a link to the project folder. You can scan the logs to determine what caused the error. Once you fix the issue, try building the image again.

    If your build is successful, the name of the image, output directory, and project directory will be displayed.

    • If you want to, you can build the image again by picking a different image format, selecting the deployment media (or both), and then starting another build. To do this, click Back to select what you want to change, and then click Next to start another build.
    • If you are done, click Finish to close the wizard and go back to the Customizations Page.

Media options for a Windows 10 Technical Preview for desktop editions image

You can use the Create menu to use a wizard to select and choose your media option.

  • Production Media – Use to create a production media of a desktop image. When you select this media option, you can choose from a WIM or FFU image format. If you choose either the WIM or FFU image format, the Select imaging options page allows you to enable OS file compression. This option is selected by default.

  • Clean Install Media – Use to create a clean install media of a desktop image.

  • Upgrade Media – Use to create an upgrade media of a desktop image.

  • Recovery Media – Use to create a recovery media of a desktop image. This can only be in the WIM image format. The Recovery Options page replaces the Select image format page that is displayed when you click the Build button. However, the rest of the workflow and pages remain the same.

To deploy an image to a PC

  1. Insert the USB drive that contains the bootable media into a PC and then boot the PC from the USB drive.

  2. Enter the product key.

  3. Accept the EULA and then wait for the installation to complete.


A premiere vue ça ressemble un peu aux manipulations et fonctionnalités basique de la création d’image de référence via MDT. j’attends avec impatience que le téléchargement se termine… je continue ma lecture!
