I help manage a small network. Each machine on our network has separate partitions for the OS (C:) and for data (D:). How can I make an image for each partition and deploy them both at once? Is it possible to combine those partitions into a single .wim file?

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Q&A forum.

    1,Do you mean different clients have different disk settings? If yes, 2e can try to configure the disk in WDS Client unattend files and associate different WDS Client unattend files to prestaged computers to configure the partitions. For more information, please refer to:

    Performing an Unattended Installation

    Configure disks as part of unattended WDS deployment

    WDS Deploying Windows Part 3: Carry Out an Unattended Deployment

    2,If you are using SCCM with WDS, we can simply deploy different task sequences to your different clients.

    Thanks for your time. Have a nice day!

    Best regards,

    Simon
