Please does anyone know if there is there a step-by-step guide/walkthrough for creating our own VM images that we can then publish in the Shared Image Gallery.

 

I want to either upload my own Windows 10 customised generalised image or start with a new Windows 10 image, add my own software and then make it available to my students.

Professor should now be able to export the required template VM to the shared image gallery.

 

If you would like to use a custom VHD image, below is the step by step process -

 

Hope this helps! Please do let us know if you have any other questions!
