Windows Image Tools | Creating an Updated Image Part 3

less than 1 minute read

Plan for today

The end game is in site. Now that I have 2 images with WMF 5. it’s time to apply all the Windows Updates.

Prerequisites

If you are folowing along you shoudl have a WindowsImageTools Update directory with two images. A striped down Core image, and all you can eat GUI image for source.

Kicking off Updates

First off I’m going to run the updates. There are a nubmer of ways to do this, Invoke-WindowsUpdate can target individual images or all the images in our Update folders, and it can control the output. Because i’m doing source and small core images. I will update each image separately, and export the WIM only for the source, and shrink the Core

Lets start with the source

get-date
Invoke-WindowsImageUpdate -Path G:\Blog_Example -output Both -ImageName Srv2012r2_Core -ReduceImageSize -Verbose
get-date
Invoke-WindowsImageUpdate -Path G:\Blog_Example -output WIM -ImageName Srv2012r2_Source -Verbose
get-date
