I work as an MSP and we image everything using the WIM images already.
Everything is deployed using the WINPE abilities of CloneDeploy. This works flawlessly for my requirements and maintains ease of use as I deploy a single image to essentially any hardware. PE and post boot scripts handle everything.
My question comes down to the differences in deploying of WIM files. Currently CloneDeploy in WinPE grabs a schema for hard drive partitions and captures a WIM per partition.
If a client captures a WIM image using another method then all that is captured is a single file. Without schema etc. This is just differences in the capture methodology.
The question then becomes, is how to get CloneDeploy PE to just deploy the single WIM without the expected drives / schema. I presume I can fake the schema and partition files, but I would rather not need to unless absolutely required. I can also check the code or modify the deployment scripts to try and account for this, I just don't currently have the time so I was hoping someone had the answer available.
