The UIU Classic (4.x)

The original Universal Imaging Utility (the UIU Classic) remains the only software application that helps you create ONE hardware independent PC image that can be easily deployed to any laptop or desktop, regardless of manufacturer or model.

The UIU Classic Features

  • Use the UIU Classic with any imaging solution, including Ghost, SCCM, MDT, WDS, Altiris, Acronis, LANDesk, Zenworks, Clonezilla, FOG, etc. 

  • Assists in the creation of a completely hardware independent PC image that incorporates the UIU Driver Database.

  • 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.

  • Assists admins in creating a new or importing an existing Sysprep .xml file.

  • Includes the UIU Discovery Tool which allows users to quickly determine hardware compatibility for all Windows operating systems.

  • Compatibility for Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10, and Windows Thin PC.

The UIU Classic Process

It's quick and easy to use the UIU to help you create a completely hardware independent image.

  1. Set up your base machine including OS, updates and organization-wide software.

  2. Capture an image of your base machine, prior to running the UIU. Save this pre-Sysprep image for when the time comes to update your image.

  3. Update and run the UIU on your base machine.

  4. When the UIU is complete, shut down your base machine and capture your master image with your preferred imaging solution.

  5. Deploy your master image to any make and model PC!

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?
