Creating a static image with Dell Image Assist Static involves a few key steps to ensure that your image is properly captured and can be deployed across multiple systems. Here’s a concise guide:

  1. Prepare Your System:

    • Start with a clean installation of Windows on your reference system.
    • Ensure that the system’s hardware configuration is identical to the target systems where the image will be deployed.
  2. Enter Audit Mode:

    • Boot the system into Audit Mode to customize the Windows installation without creating a user account.
    • Use the CTRL + Shift + F3 shortcut at the OOBE screen or run Sysprep.exe with the Audit Mode option.
  3. Customize the Image:

    • Install necessary drivers, applications, and make any system settings changes.
    • Test the system to ensure all customizations work as expected.
  4. Capture the Image:

    • Use Dell Image Assist Static to capture the image of your system.
    • Follow the prompts to create a static image file.
  5. Deploy the Image:

    • Use Dell Image Assist or other deployment tools to apply the static image to your target systems.
    • Ensure that the deployment process completes successfully and the systems are configured correctly.

Remember to consult the Dell Image Assist documentation for detailed instructions and best practices. If you need further assistance, send an email to US_OSimaging@Dell.com
