When Can You Remove the Boot USB Drive During Imaging?


Recommended Posts

When imaging a PC via USB media how long do you need to wait before you can remove the USB drive from the PC? Is there a certain point in the imaging process where the USB drive is no longer needed or does the USB drive need to be connected through the entire process?

Once the Deploy Wizard reboots the machine for the first time you can take out the USB stick. That's when the image and platform pack is applied so after the first reboot the machine is loading from the hard drive and not the USB.
