Detailed Description

The New-CMBootImage cmdlet adds a new Windows Preinstallation Environment (Windows PE) operating system boot image to Microsoft System Center 2012 Configuration Manager. Operating system images are .wim format files. These files contain a compressed set of reference files and folders that are required to successfully install and configure a boot image on a computer. By default, System Center 2012 Configuration Manager includes both x86 and x64 operating system images.

You must run New-CMBootImage on the computer that is running the Systems Management Server (SMS) provider. The computer account of the computer that is running the SMS provider must have Read and Write access to the package source of the boot image. For more information about the SMS provider, see Planning for the SMS Provider in Configuration Manager (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=263566) on TechNet.
