If you completed the basic Windows 7 in-place migration procedure using the Only Download Base Layer option, you can now apply the base layer to CVDs that have downloaded.

The basic migration operation that you ran with the Only Download Base Layer option created a Migration Download task containing the CVDs you selected. At the end of that operation, the Windows 7 image download to individual endpoints is either ongoing or completed. See Basic Windows 7 In-Place Migration Procedure, but applying the CVDs is not started.

You now need to start applying the image to the endpoints.

In that process, you can choose to apply all the CVDs that have finished downloading, or you can select specific CVDs to apply first. You can then apply the remaining CVDs in additional cycles.

If not all the CVDs in the task, or in your selection of CVDs, are finished downloading, you can additionally choose to wait until they have all finished downloading, or apply the ones that have finished so far. You can then apply the remaining CVDs in additional cycles as they finish downloading.
