    Dear Abheekdutta, I liked your description about Imaging unknown computers through SCCM. As i am a newbie to SCCM.
    I have two questions…
    1. What if some guest comes to organization with personal laptop and connect it to Organization’s network. Will it consider it as unknown computer and start Imaging it?
    2. Screenshot regarding enabling command line support in the Boot Image, You Checked an option “Include files for the prestart command”. which folder should we browse to under Source Directory.

    Thanks in Advance
