Hello Everyone:
So one of the things I am curious about is making computer images. My boss already knows how to do it, and makes the images for the place I work at, but he’s not always up for sharing information. I know bits and pieces of the process, but is there anyone out there that can explain it fully and clearly to me? I want to make sure I know how to do this properly. I want to learn how to make an image of Windows 7 Professional x64.
If it matters, we are using Symantec Ghost 11.5 to load the image onto the hard drives, clonezilla to clone if necessary. If we are doing 34 computers or more, we use the network image option (not exactly those words) on Hirms Boot CD.
Thanks again in advance for everyone’s help!

Excellent link, TY for sharing...I've been "fiddling" with WAIK, WSIM, adding/removing packages/M$ updates with DISM,Sysprep, WinPE... etc for a few months now, this helps!

Take a look at the Windows 8.1 Deployment Jump Start. The modern deployment solutions which are available for free from Microsoft (MDT, ACT, WSIM, USMT, DISM, etc.) provide significantly more functionality than sector based imaging solutions. For example, with the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT) you can build a single deployment share with a single image that can deploy to multiple hardware platforms, can include various application configurations, and can be kept up to date without capturing a new image.
