Capturing/Deploying Kiosk Image using WinPE

Post#1 by rfalias » 13 Oct 2016, 19:04

My organization uses a windows PE based environment to build all of our devices (99.999% windows, :bad: )
Now when I use the tools we have (Imagew, ODIN) they can't seem to capture all of the necessary partitions, etc. I'd like to be able to build a specific use kiosk and have that deployed with our existing win pe disks so the field tech's don't have to carry around multiple USB drive.

Do you guys have any thoughts? If we had a *nix based build environment I'd just use dd and call it a day. Really stuck here.

Hello rfalias,

Capturing is not a problem. You need to configure your kiosk in the wizard and then save the ISO on removable device rather than burning it straight on the hard drive:

Once you have "golden" image you can deploy it on multiple PCs. With 'dd' its really easy but i dont know about similar tools for Windows.

Thanks
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.

Yeah, I'm looking for a way to get the ISO to the HDD at that point still from WinPE. I have yet to find a decent tool that works in WinPE to deploy it to an HDD with a bootloader.

Ah!! I found an actual working version of DD for windows!! It works, same params as GNU dd. Hopefully it helps someone in the future!
