  • Windows 7 Image through VM

    I've been looking on Google and haven't found an answer to this yet, but is it plausible and practical to use a VM to start molding an image for Windows 7 Deployment using a Virtual Machine, I swore I read somewhere with the generalization option that it was possible, but I was wondering if anyone here had success using a VM to make an image to deploy(Which I plan to send out using MDT of course), I was just hoping to add some apps in so they would be preinstalled and MDT wouldn't have to bother with them(Such as Java, our antivirus, etc).

    Note: This would probably be better in one of the Virtualisation forums.

      I always build my images in a virtual environment. XP, and up, client and server.

        Thanks for the link, and if you feel it belongs somewhere else, feel free to move it.

        Edit: Could I use the VDI from virtualbox, or what do you recommend I use for making the VHD?

        Edit2: We are also using x64, so it needs to be compatible with X64.
