The ability to create custom installation images (whether they be of servers, desktops, or more specialized devices) is a tremendously handy thing. In Windows Server 2008, Microsoft released a tool that makes the creation of these images much easier called ImageX.

ImageX works hand-in-hand with a second tool, called the Windows Preinstallation Environment (WinPE). In this series of videos, I will explain how you can use ImageX and Windows PE to create custom images and deploy them.

In this video, Part 2 of the series, we will cover how to create a custom WinPE image that includes ImageX and other useful tools. Part 1 talks about where to find and download WinPE/ImageX and how to install them.

The entire series is from a networking infrastructure course that I am currently teaching. I am posting it here in the hope that it will be helpful to a wider audience.

The ability to create custom installation images and deploy them to other machines is a very handy skill. If you are working in a large environment, you can create a master image with all of the tools needed for your work that could be used on all of your hardware. In this series of videos, I will explain how you can use ImageX and Windows PE to create custom images and deploy them.

Note: The following video is part 1 of a series that I have put together for a networking class that I am currently teaching. I have posted it here in the hope that it will be helpful to a slightly wider audience.
