Capture system images

Capture system images

You can capture images with the K2000 or remote (RSA) appliances, after you boot the device in to the K2000 Boot Environment (KBE).

After the device boots in to the KBE, you can access the built-in VNC remote control software to capture images from remote devices to the K2000.

2.
Click Capture image of this device.
3.
In Image Name, enter a name that identifies the image on the appliance.
4.
In Image Source, ensure that all the drives that you want to capture appear in the list.
5.
Click Force continue on errors to continue the capture and the upload process even if warnings and fatal errors occur.
6.
Click Include debug output in log to enable debugging level logging and upload the logs to the Appliance Logs page.
7.
Click Start capture.
The capture process adds a system image entry to the System Images page in the KACE Systems Deployment Appliance Administrator Console, and also in the Remote Site Console, if the image is captured using an RSA.

Create a UEFI partition

Create a UEFI partition

You can add the built-in Create UEFI Partitions pre-installation task, which uses a DiskPart script, to create a Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) hard drive partition on Windows 7 x64 SP1 or higher x64 UEFI-enabled devices.

The NTFS format does not work on UEFI-enabled devices. UEFI-enabled devices use the GUID Partition Table (GPT), which uses a global unique identifier for devices that is different from the commonly used Master Boot Record partitioning style in the BIOS.

On the left navigation pane, click Library to expand the section, then click Pre-installation Tasks to display the Pre-installation Tasks page.
2.
Select Create UEFI Partitions from the list to display the Pre-installation Task Detail page.

4.
In DISKPART Script, verify that the command-line options match the ones you want to use.
5.
Click Save.
Use the Apply UEFI Partition mid-level task to apply the partition.
