The UIU 5

When integrated with your WindowsPE-based imaging solution, the Universal Imaging Utility (UIU) Version 5 will determine the hardware of the target PCs during deployment and retrieve and stage the necessary drivers for each individual target PC from the continuously-updated UIU Repository located on your network.

Why should you UIU?

The UIU remains the only software application able to completely automate the deployment of a hardware independent OS image to any model laptop or desktop PC. If you are creating and maintaining several images for your organization, or spending hours manually managing drivers, true hardware independent imaging with the UIU will save you countless hours and headaches. 

What would you do if you never had to struggle with drivers ever again?

The UIU 5 Features

  • Integrate with any WindowsPE-based imaging solution (Not using a WinPE solution?)

  • The UIU Driver Database currently includes over 62,000 plug-n-play IDs, which are continuously updated by Big Bang, ensuring complete driver coverage for both older and brand new hardware.

  • Additional development for Symantec Ghost including options for integration with the Ghost Console, GhostCast Server, Ghost Client and Ghost Offline Deploy.

  • Includes a user interface for Microsoft’s command-line imaging application, DISM. Options include Basic Capture, Basic Deploy and Advanced Deploy.

  • Utilities to inject boot-critical UIU drivers into a pre-built WinPE image and to simplify the creation of a custom WinPE image with UIU drivers.

  • OS compatibility includes Windows 7 through Windows 10 (Windows XP upon request)

The UIU 5 Process

It's quick and easy to setup and run the UIU with your preferred imaging solution. 

  1. Launch the UIU 5 and follow the instructions to establish a network-accessible UIU Repository.

  2. Select the wizard to customize the UIU for your imaging solution.

  3. After completing the UIU integration with your imaging solution, perform OS deployments as you normally would.

  4. During deployment, the UIU will determine the hardware of the target PC, then the UIU will retrieve and stage the necessary drivers for each individual target PC.

  5. Run UIU Updates regularly and never have to touch another driver ever again!
