Endpoint Services, SCCM, In-place Imaging


This article provides in-place imaging information on Windows via SCCM Current Branch assuming: your unit's SCCM instance is already configured; the OS Deploy Task sequence has already been deployed to the proper collection


  • System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) Current Branch

Affected Customers

  • University of Illinois IT Pros leveraging Technology Services Endpoint Service SCCM Current Branch


 Gather Information
Information you will need:
a. device name
installed applications
verify the device exists in your SCCM instance
determine if data needs to be retained on the device planned for re-image
note your OS Deploy Collection
f. confirm the task sequence is deployed to Configuration Manager clients

 Image in Place - Fresh Image (no profile capture and no restore)
Once you have the device name needing to be imaged and your OS Deploy Collection has been configured, you can prepare the re-image by:

a. manually backup any user directories as needed
b. find the device in your SCCM instance

c. right click the device and choose Add Selected Items to Existing Device Collection

e. navigate to your OS Deploy Collection and Update Membership on the collection which should make the Task Sequence available in Software Center (typically takes less than 15 minutes to appear in the collection)

f. open Software Center on the device to be imaged and find your OS Deploy Task sequence
g. select the OS Deploy Task Sequence and choose Install

h. system should restart and begin running the task sequence


- without USMT Capture and Restore
, the above process will wipe the machine. no files will be retained

- only the base image and base applications that are configured by the Task Sequence will be installed

- if additional applications are required, deploy these as required or available deployments

- additional non-packaged applications will require manual installation
