Remove-WdsBootImage

Brian Lich|Last Updated: 3/8/2017

SYNOPSIS

Removes a boot image from the image store.

SYNTAX

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

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.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Remove a boot image

PS C:\> Remove-WdsBootImage -Architecture x86 -ImageName "Fabrikam LOB setup (x86)"

This command removes the boot image named Fabrikam LOB setup (x86) for the x86 architecture.

PARAMETERS

-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 make sure that you remove the correct image. The acceptable values for this parameter are:

  • ARM
  • ia64
  • x64
  • x86
Type: Architecture
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 
Accepted values: X86, Ia64, X64, Arm

Required: True
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters: False

-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.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-CimSession

Runs the cmdlet in a remote session or on a remote computer. Enter a computer name or a session object, such as the output of a New-CimSession or Get-CimSession cmdlet. The default is the current session on the local computer.

Type: CimSession[]
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: Session

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-Confirm

Prompts you for confirmation before running the cmdlet.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: cf

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: False
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-FileName

Specifies a file name. This is the file name of the boot image. Use this parameter to specify the file name for the boot image if the boot image name does not uniquely identify the image.

Type: String
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: True (ByPropertyName)

-ImageName

Specifies the name of an image. This is the name of the image to remove.

Type: String
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: True
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters: False

-ThrottleLimit

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.

Type: Int32
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-WhatIf

Shows what would happen if the cmdlet runs. The cmdlet is not run.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: (All)

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: False
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False
