Imaging a hard drive usually requires that the computer is booted to an "Automation Preboot Environment" rather than the "Production" Windows that you are trying to image. Windows PE 10 is a suitable Automation Preboot operating system for almost every circumstance. This tutorial will show you how to import a Windows Preboot Operating system into Ghost Standard Tools 3.x. 

Please note that this is for Ghost Solution Suite. If you are using Ghost Solution Suite console installation the instructions are in another document.

1. Download the Windows 10 ADK (Build 1607). Install as directed. When asked for features to install, these two are the only ones we require:

 

2. Browse to C:\Program Files (x86)\Symantec\Ghost\bootwiz (or to the bootwiz folder in the location you chose to install to, if you chose an alternate install location). Double-click bootwiz.exe.

3. The Install Pre-Boot Operating Systems wizard will appear (if no pre-boot operating system is already present). If the wizard does not appear automatically click Tools -> Install Pre-Boot Operating Systems 

4. Click "WinPE 10.0 x86". Click the radio button for "Pre-installed WAIK"
For Ghost Standard Tools 3.0 and 3.1 browse to C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10
For Ghost Standard Tools 3.2 browse to C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\

Click Next

 

5. It will take a couple minutes to completely import this. After it completes, you will see the following screen. Click Finish.

6. The following pop-up will then appear. Click Cancel.

7. Repeat the same process, this time importing WinPE 10 X64

8. Select "WinPE 10.0 x64". Click the radio button for "Pre-installed ADK"

For Ghost Standard Tools 3.0 and 3.1 browse to C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10
For Ghost standard Tools 3.2 browse to C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\

Click Next.

9. After that completes, click Finish. You are done.

You may now create WinPE 10 boot media
