TCM makes it easy to deploy a Boot Camp partition to many macs, all at once. TCM sends commands to install a package created with Winclone Pro from an AFP share. Winclone Pro makes it easy to create a standard macOS package that will create the Boot Camp partition and restore Windows to it.
Winclone 7 supports deploying Windows via Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT) via booting to a Windows Preinstallation Environment (WinPE). A similar workflow can be applied for environments that deploy Windows images via SCCM. This document covers setting up MDT, creating the WINPE files, creating the Winclone package and booting into the WinPE environment.
Winclone 7 Pro makes it easy to create, customize and deploy Windows packages to Boot Camp partitions. Winclone 7 Pro makes it easy to create a Winclone package either from a SysPrep’ed image or from a WIM file on a Windows installation ISO. The image can be customized during deployment to set the computer name, create user accounts, run scripts, install drivers and much more. This documents explains how to create, customize and deploy a Winclone package using Winclone 7 Pro.
Windows Preinstallation Environment (WinPE) is a minimal version of Windows used for deploying a full-featured Windows installation. A common workflow is to boot WinPE from a USB drive and image from System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) or Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT). Using WinPE with Winclone allows you to create a local partition with a WinPE boot partition instead of needing to insert a USB drive in all machines.
If you are having issues with initial boot after restoring a Winclone image to new hardware, you can inject basic drivers into the Winclone image using the DISM command line tool in Windows 10. This only works if Windows has been sysprep’ed prior to imaging.
Apple has implemented a new security feature, System Integrity Protection (SIP), starting with OS X 10.11. SIP prevents anyone from altering the contents of files in key System folders and is designed to protect System files from malware and viruses. SIP also affects third-party apps like Winclone that need to write to files now under protection of SIP. If you are getting a message that the boot sector cannot be updated, or that SIP needs to be disabled, this article may help.
