Windows 7: Capture Linux OS image using WDS (Windows Deployment Services)

Capture Linux OS image using WDS (Windows Deployment Services)

Hello. I have an issue.

I want to capture an Linux OS custom image or a fresh one and want to use WDS to complete the job. Could it be done?

I know I can use WDS from server to deploy WIN 7 or anyother Win OS to other systems. But can I use the same service to deploy Linux OS to other new systems and how can I go around in capturing the Linux OS image.

I don't want to use any third party application to capture and deploy both WIN and Linux images. I can use SysPrep to capture Windows image, but how do I go about capturing Linux image?

Is there an in-built app for Linux to capture an image like SysPrep (for WIN)???

Please help.

Thank you so much for the reply. Also I wanted to ask, if any of the options in linux like the DD option will let me clone the Linux installed image after making changes to it.
Example: Can I install a fresh Linux and then install other applications on it. Then go on to clone that OS to deploy from the WDS?

Thank you.
