Getting started with Windows ICD

Read this topic to find out how to install and run the Windows ICD.

Supported platforms for Windows ICD

Provides information about:

  • Supported host platforms - Versions of Windows 10 Technical Preview that can run Windows ICD

  • Supported target images - Windows images that can be configured using Windows ICD

Build and apply a provisioning package

You can use Windows ICD to create a provisioning package (.ppkg), which contains customizations that you can include for a particular Windows image. You can either apply the provisioning package to an image or share it as a standalone package that can be applied to a running system using the Provisioning Engine.

Export a provisioning package

Export a provisioning package if you want to reuse the customizations already configured in a different project or to share it as a standalone package that can be applied to a running system during initial device setup or later.

Build and deploy a Windows 10 image for desktop editions

You can use Windows ICD to create a new Windows 10 Technical Preview for desktop editions (Home, Pro, and Enterprise) image and customize it by adding drivers, apps, language packs, settings, and more. You can also build the deployment media either to a folder or to a USB key.

Configure customizations using Windows ICD

You can use Windows ICD to configure the Windows device UI, connectivity settings, and user experience to better reflect your brand, to meet mobile network requirements, to comply with IT department security requirements, or to fit market segments or regions where the device will ship.

Use the Windows ICD command-line interface

You can use the Windows ICD command-line interface (CLI) to automate the building of provisioning packages and Windows 10 Technical Preview for desktop editions.

  • For OEMs who already have an established manufacturing process or for enterprise IT Pros who also have established IT management infrastructures, you can use the Windows ICD CLI to require less re-tooling of your existing processes. You must run the Windows ICD CLI from a command window with administrator privileges.

  • For OEMs that want to create an image and/or provisioning package with multivariant support, you must use the Windows ICD CLI and edit the customizations.xml sources.

Note   The latest version of Windows Imaging and Configuration Designer (ICD) is still in development and not feature complete. All the information and screenshots in this section are preliminary and subject to change.

 

 

Read this topic to find out how to install and run the Windows ICD.

Install Windows ICD
  • To install Windows ICD and configure Windows 10 Technical Preview images only, you must install the Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (ADK) for Windows 10 Technical Preview.

    While running "ADKsetup.exe", check the following ADK features from the Select the features you want to install dialog box:

    • Deployment Tools
    • Windows Preinstallation Environment (Windows PE)
    • Windows Imaging and Configuration Designer (Windows ICD)
    • User State Migration Tool (USMT)

    Windows ICD depends on other tools in order to work correctly. If you only select Windows ICD in the ADK install wizard, these other tools (Deployment tools, Windows PE, and USMT) will also be selected for installation.

Run Windows ICD

After you have installed Windows ICD, you can use either the Windows ICD UI or command-line interface (CLI) from the Deployment and Imaging Tools Environment, with administrator privileges, using these steps:

To use the UI

  1. Launch Windows ICD:

    • From either the Start screen or the Start menu search pane, type 'Imaging and Configuration Designer' and click on the Windows ICD shortcut, or,

    • Navigate to 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\Assessment and Deployment Kit\Imaging and Configuration Designer\x86' (on an x64 computer) or 'C:\Program Files\Windows Kits\10\Assessment and Deployment Kit\Imaging and Configuration Designer\x86\ICD.exe' (on an x86 computer), and then double-click ICD.exe.

  2. The Windows Imaging and Configuration Designer window should display the Start page.

  3. To start with a new project, click "New Project..." and follow the Windows ICD wizard.

    For step-by-step UI instructions and scenario information, see these topics:

    If you have previously created projects that you want to modify, click "Open Project..." to navigate to your existing projects.

To use the command-line interface

  1. Open a command-line window with administrator privileges.

  2. From the command-line, navigate to the Windows ICD install directory.

    On an x64 computer, type:

    'cd C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\Assessment and Deployment Kit\Imaging and Configuration Designer\x86'

    or

    On an x86 computer, type:

    'cd C:\Program Files\Windows Kits\10\Assessment and Deployment Kit\Imaging and Configuration Designer\x86'

  3. See Use the Windows ICD command-line interface for more information about using the Windows ICD CLI.

Supported Windows ICD project workflows

When you select a new project within Windows ICD, you have a choice of two project workflows:

  • Provisioning Package - Use this workflow to build a provisioning package that targets a Windows edition. A provisioning package allows you to customize an existing Windows image without re-imaging, or you can use this package to build a Windows image. For more information, see Build and deploy a provisioning package and Export a provisioning package.

  • Imaging - Use this workflow to create and build a new Windows image. From this workflow, you can use a:

    • Windows Desktop WIM-based image - This imaging method requires an Install.wim file, which contains the Windows edition that you want to use. This lets you build a deployment media either to a folder or to a USB key. For more information, see Build and deploy a Windows 10 image for desktop editions.

    • Windows pre-installed OS kit - This imaging method uses a pre-installed OS kit for Windows editions that have associated OS kits already installed.

 

Current Windows ICD limitations
  • You can only run one instance of Windows ICD on your computer at a time.

  • A provisioning package must apply to a specific Windows edition. In other words, you cannot create a generic provisioning package that applies to all Windows devices.

  • Deployment time application of a provisioning package is not yet available.

  • When building an image for Windows 10 Technical Preview for desktop editions (Home, Pro, and Enterprise), you can only build to a .wim file.

  • Be aware that when adding apps and drivers, all files stored in the same folder will be imported and may cause errors during the build process.

  • While you can open multiple projects at the same time within Windows ICD, you can only build one project at a time.

  • A best practice when using Windows ICD to build projects or answer files that contains assets, such as apps or drivers, is to copy all necessary files to the local computer that is running Windows ICD. For example, when you add a driver to a provisioned package, you must copy the .INF file to a local directory on the computer that is running Windows ICD. If you do not do this, and attempt to use a copied version of this project on a different computer, Windows ICD might attempt to resolve the path to the files that point to the original computer.

    Note  This might cause Windows ICD with the copied project or answer file to crash when you try to build an image.

    If your build is successful, the name of the provisioning package, output directory, and project directory will be shown.

    • If you choose, you can build the provisioning package again and pick a different path for the output package. To do this, click Back to change the output package name and path, and then click Next to start another build.
    • If you are done, click Finish to close the wizard and go back to the Customizations Page.

Note  For Windows 10 Technical Preview for desktop editions (Home, Pro, and Enterprise), the provisioning package will be included in the Windows ICD media and be consumed at deployment time in various setup phases. During device setup time, the provisioning engine starts and consumes the packages.
To apply a provisioning package to a Windows 10 Technical Preview for desktop editions

You can add a provisioning package to a .WIM that will be applied at deployment time.

Deployment time

  1. Create a local copy of the base image, Install.wim.

  2. Mount the .WIM using DISM.

    dism /mount-image /imagefile:"install.wim" /index:1 /mountdir:"C:\MountDir"
  3. Navigate to the mounted image using File Explorer.

    C:\MountDir\ProgramData\Microsoft\Provisioning\Packages
  4. Copy the provisioning package to this location. You may copy multiple provisioning packages.

  5. Unmount the image.

    • Save your changes.

      dism /unmount-image /mountdir:"C:\MountDir" /Commit
    • Discard your changes.

      dism /unmount-image /mountdir:"C:\MountDir" /Discard

You can apply a provisioning package that will be applied to the image at runtime.

Runtime

  1. Select the provisioning package that you want to apply, double-click the file, and then allow admin privileges.

  2. Consent to allow the package to be installed.

    After you allow the package to be installed, the runtime settings will be applied to the image.

Export a provisioning package

[some information relates to pre-released product, which may be substantially modified before it's commercially released. Microsoft makes no warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information provided here.]

 

Export a provisioning package if you want to reuse the customizations already configured in a different project or to share it as a standalone package that can be applied to a running system during initial device setup or later.

 

For example, you can use Windows Imaging and Configuration Designer (ICD) for image customization and then build the model image with its media. You can then export the customizations done in the Customizations Page to a provisioning package before building the model image and media. You can also import the provisioning package in the New Project wizard when starting another imaging project workflow to create a model image for a similar device model. The assets and settings in the imported provisioning package will be pre-populated in the Customizations Page and you can add or change more assets and settings instead of redoing the customization tasks again before building the model image media.

Important  Importing a provisioning package is not yet supported in this release of Windows 10 Technical Preview.

Alternatively, you can also use the Windows ICD command-line interface to specify the provisioning package to build another model image with the media without further modifications to the current package contents. For more information, see Use the Windows ICD command line interface.

 

To export a provisioning package

  1. From the Windows ICD menu, select Export and then choose Provisioning Package.

  2. Optional. In the Provisioning Package Configuration page, specify a Package Name. This field is pre-populated with the project name that you entered in the New Project wizard. You can change this value by entering a different name in the Package Name field.

    Windows ICD shows an auto-generated package GUID or the package GUID inherited from an imported provisioning package in the Package Id field. You cannot change this string and it's shown only for your reference.

     

  3. Optional. You can change the default package version by specifying a new value in the Package Version field. The version must follow this numerical format: "<Major>.<Minor>"

    The value for the package version is pre-populated with the latest package version number or "1.0" if this is the first time that a package is being exported.

  4. Set the Package Owner to one of these values:

    • Microsoft
    • Silicon Vendor
    • OEM
    • System Integrator
    • Mobile Operator
    • IT Admin
  5. Optional. You can set the Package Rank to a value between 0 and 99, inclusive. The default package rank is 0.

  6. Click Next.

  7. In the Provisioning Package Output window, a default location is shown in the Output Location field.

    Click Browse to change the default value and specify a different output location where you want the provisioning package to go once it's built.

  8. Click Next.

  9. Click Build to build the provisioning package.

    Once the provisioning package is built, you can use it for the scenarios described above.

    For most settings, a brief description of the setting and its default value is shown in the Customizations Editor panel.

  2. In the Customizations Editor panel, set the value for the setting that you selected and then click the save setting button (denoted by a floppy disk) next to the textbox.

    A check mark appears next to the setting that you customized and saved in the Available Customizations pane.

 

Select the Windows Updates asset to add Windows Updates. Windows Updates are .MSU files that you can add to a provisioning package.

To add OS updates

  1. Click the Browse... button to launch File Explorer to search and locate the path that contains the individual Windows Updates (.msu), or the folder that contains multiple Windows Updates.

  2. Select the path. This populates the Update package path textbox.

  3. Specify a friendly name for the Windows Updates by typing a name in the Name textbox.

  4. Click Add to add the Windows Updates to the Configured Customizations panel.

    A check mark in the Available Customizations pane appears next to the asset that you added.

    Important  If you selected a folder path that contains multiple update packages, the folder path will be added to the Configured Customizations tree view as the parent node to the update package nodes. In this case, you cannot remove individual update packages from the configured customizations list as only the folder path that contains all the update packages can be removed. You must remove the update packages from the folder using File Explorer before you can add the folder path again using the Customizations Page in Windows ICD to add the rest of the update packages in the folder.
 

You can remove or change the information for any asset that you add.

To remove or change an asset

  1. Select the asset from the Configured Customizations panel to show that asset's information in the Customizations Editor panel.

  2. To remove the asset, click Remove.

  3. To change the information about the existing asset including selecting a different path, specifying a different name, and so on, update the information that you want to change and then click Save.

 

You can remove or change the information for any setting that you add.

To remove or change a setting

  1. Select the setting from the Configured Customizations panel to show that setting's information in the Customizations Editor panel.

  2. To reset the value to the default OS value or to remove the setting from the configured customizations list, click the X next to the textbox.

    The X removes the setting from the configured customizations list.

  3. To change the value for the setting, type the new setting value and then click the save setting button (denoted by a floppy disk) next to the textbox.

Use the Windows ICD command-line interface

[some information relates to pre-released product, which may be substantially modified before it's commercially released. Microsoft makes no warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information provided here.]

 

You can use the Windows Imaging and Configuration Designer (ICD) command-line interface (CLI) to automate the building of provisioning packages and Windows 10 Technical Preview for desktop editions (Home, Pro, and Enterprise).

  • For OEMs who already have an established manufacturing process or for enterprise IT Pros who also have established IT management infrastructures, you can use the Windows ICD CLI to require less re-tooling of your existing processes. You must run the Windows ICD CLI from a command window with administrator privileges.

  • For OEMs that want to create an image and/or provisioning package with multivariant support, you must use the Windows ICD CLI and edit the customizations.xml sources.

 

Supported scenarios

 

Usage

Running "icd.exe /?" brings up the following usage information:

 

icd.exe <command> <parameters>

 

Example

 

icd.exe /Build-ImageFromWIM /CustomizationXML:x /OutputPath:x /SourceImage:x /ImageIndex:x

 

To build a provisioning package

For more information about what a provisioning package is, see the description in Build and apply a provisioning package. You must gather all the assets and settings that you need and then write the answer file that contains the asset payloads and setting values. You need the answer file as one of the inputs to the Windows ICD CLI to build a provisioning package.

Syntax:

 

icd.exe /Build-ProvisioningPackage /CustomizationXML:<path_to_xml> /PackagePath:<path_to_ppkg> [/storeFile:<path_to_storefile>][[+|-]Encrypted] [/?]

 

Switches and arguments:

Switch Required? Arguments

/CustomizationXML

Yes

Specifies the path to an XML file that contains the customization assets and settings.

/PackagePath

Yes

Specifies the path and the package name where the built provisioning package will be saved.

/StoreFile

No

Specifies the path to a Windows store file.

Encrypted

No

Specifies if the provisioning package should be built with encryption. Windows ICD auto-generates the decryption password and includes this information in the output.

Precede with + for encryption or - for no encryption. The default is no encryption.

/?

No

Lists the switches and their descriptions for the command-line tool or for certain commands.

 

To build a Windows 10 Technical Preview for desktop editions image

Before you can use the Windows ICD CLI to build a Windows 10 Technical Preview for desktop editions image, you must:

  1. Download the image WIM file from the Windows Portal and save it to a location that is accessible by the command line.

  2. Optionally, run the build provisioning package command line to create one or more provisioning packages that contain the assets and settings that you will use to customize the Windows image.

  3. Create a deployment XML file that contains the selected options for the type of deployment media that you are building. These are the same options that are available in the build wizard of the Windows ICD UI; for example, the WIM or FFU image format, and the local folder or USB key as the target media. For more information, see Build and deploy a Windows 10 image.

Syntax:

 

icd.exe /Build-ImageFromWIM /CustomizationXML:<path_to_xml> /MediaPath:<path_to_media_folder> /SourceImage:<path_to_image> [imageIndex:<index>] [imageName:<name>] [/ProvisioningPackage:<path_to_ppkg>] /DeploymentConfigXml:<path_to_xml>
[/?]

 

Switches and arguments:

Switch Required? Arguments

/CustomizationXML

Yes

Specifies the path to an XML file that contains the customization assets and settings.

/MediaPath

Yes

Specifies the directory path to a local folder or local network share where the Windows image and its deployment media will be saved.

/SourceImage

Yes

Specifies the path to a WIM file, which contains the image to be used to build the customized image.

/ImageIndex

No

Specifies the index of the image in the WIM file.

/ImageName

No

Specifies the name of the image in the WIM file that will be used as the base image.

/ProvisioningPackage

No

Specifies the path to a provisioning package that contains the customization assets and settings that will be applied to the image. You can use this parameter multiple times to specify multiple provisioning packages.

/DeploymentConfigXml

Yes

Specifies the path to an XML file that contains the selected options for the target deployment media that should be built.

/?

No

Lists the switches and their descriptions for the command-line tool or for certain commands.

Hello there i have created 2 ISOs Greek and English.

 

Inside of the frist DVD are these operating systems Windows 10 Home - Pro - Enterprise x86 - x64 English

In the second DVD are these operating systems Windows 10 Home - Pro - Enterprise x86 - x64 Greek

 

All that i want is to intergrate those two DVDs into a single ISO no matter of the size so when it boots up in the first screen i want to pop up in wich language i want to install English or Greek and after that to select the operating system that fits on the computer

 

So how this can be done ?

 

Thanks a lot
