Batch file called automatically when the Windows deployment is completed. You can add more commands to this file as needed (install VPN client, for example).


Horizon Mirageclient installed on the new Windows machine. Make sure the client version matches the Horizon Mirage server version.


An answer file for the unattended Windows installation that you can edit to customize the deployed Windows installation. This file is found in the root of the USB drive.


(Optional) Add Boot-critical drivers to the Bootable USB by putting them in <USB DRIVE>:\$WinPEDrivers$.

Do this only if the Windows installation cannot proceed due to missing a critical driver, for example, a missing disk controller, preventing the installation from detecting the hard drive.


Copy the contents of <USB DRIVE>:\sources\$oem$\$1\MirageDrivers\ to the local folder C:\MirageDrivers.

The Windows installation will search and use drivers located in the folder “MirageDrivers” on the root of any drive.


(Optional) You can customize the Windows installation further in the following ways:


Copy the contents of <USB DRIVE>:\sources\$oem$\$$ to the Windows folder on the installation drive, e.g. C:\Windows.


Copy the contents of <USB DRIVE>:\sources\$oem$\$1 to the installation drive, e.g. C:\.
