Automate Creation of WIM Files This is the initial release of a new version of my Image Factory Utility with support for Oracle Virtual Box. I’ve tested it myself, but there may be issues on other setups, so I’d be interested in hearing if anyone has problems when using Virtual Box. 2021-12-02: Version 21.12.01 Added option to use Oracle Virtual Box instead of Hyper-V. Configured logs path now is created, if it does not exist.
Automate Creation of WIM Files Just a small update to this utility. Some tidying up of code and added a progression bar so you can see at a glance how far through the list of TS ID’s the script is. 2021-06-22: Version 21.06.22 Added a progression bar display. Changed a variable to prevent conflicts with future PowerShell versions. Image Factory Utility can be downloaded from: The Microsoft PowerShell Gallery GitHub See the full documentation available here.

It’s been completely overhauled and has some small new features added. 2020-02-27: Version 20.02.24 ‘Robot’ New features: Refactored code. Fully backwards compatible. Added ASCII banner art when run in the console. Added option to disable the ASCII banner art. Image Factory Utility can also be downloaded from: The Microsoft PowerShell Gallery GitHub See the full documentation available here.
In a previous post I wrote about my Image Factory PowerShell script for MDT. This post is about a script derived from that which I setup to test my images and my deployment task sequences. Since this script is only an edit of the previous one I don’t intend to release it “officially” on the TechNet Gallery or the PowerShell Gallery. To explain succinctly what this script does, it turns Task Sequences into Virtual Machines.

UPDATE: This post is old and intended as a walk through on how my original script was put together for those wishing to learn PowerShell. For the finished, up-to-date script please check out this post and you can download the script from my Microsoft TechNet profile. Recently I’ve been looking into automating my image build process further using PowerShell to create an Image Factory of sorts. There are other similar scripts that I’ve found online, but I like the relatively simple and straightforward method I’ve developed below.
