Description

The Remove-CMOperatingSystemImage cmdlet removes one or more operating system images from a Configuration Manager site. Operating system images are .wim format files and represent a compressed collection of reference files and folders that Configuration Manager requires to successfully install and configure an operating system on a computer.

After you remove an operating system image, you cannot distribute the operating system image to distribution points.

Note

Run Configuration Manager cmdlets from the Configuration Manager site drive, for example PS XYZ:\>. For more information, see getting started.

Examples

Example 1: Remove an operating system image
