Remove-WdsBootImage

Removes a boot image from the image store.

Syntax

Parameter Set: BootImageName
Remove-WdsBootImage -Architecture <Architecture> -ImageName <String> [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-FileName <String> ] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Remove-WdsBootImage cmdlet removes a boot image from the Windows Deployment Services image store. When you remove a boot image, the boot image is not available in the Windows Deployment Services image store, and you cannot use the image to boot a client computer into to perform an operating system installation After you remove a boot image, you cannot recover the image unless you import it to the Windows Deployment Services image store from its original source.

Specify the boot image by using the ImageName and Architecture parameters. If the image name and architecture do not uniquely identify the image, also specify the FileName parameter.

Parameters

-Architecture<Architecture>

Specifies an architecture. This is the architecture of the boot image. Because you can use the same image name for boot images in different architectures, specify this this parameter to ensure that you remove the correct image. The acceptable values for this parameter are: 

-- ARM
-- ia64
-- x64
-- x86

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete. The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet. For more information about Windows PowerShell® background jobs, see about_Jobs.

-ThrottleLimit<Int32>

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShell® calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.
