Adding a version to a master image

If you create updated master images for your deployments from time to time, you need a way to keep track of the version of each image. A quick and easy way of doing so is to do the following while logged onto your master image and before you sysprep and capture it:

  1. Open Regedit, and locate the key HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\OEMInformation
  2. Create a new string value named Model under this key and use it to specify the version number of the image
  3. After you do this, click Start and right click on Computer. Under System you'll find the model (version) number displayed.
