How to copy Image from Sharder drive on to USB drive to image multiple thin clients

HP Recommended
T530 Thin Client
Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit)

I currently manage a GOLD image for T510 & T520 Thin Clients, to do this I create an image and capture it with HP ThinUpdate. Once completed this then gets copied to a shared drive. This image can then be copied to a new USB stick that is bootable and is then used to image the relevant Thin Clients.


My Issue is that I have tried to do the same with the T530 image, however HP have changed the way they format the USB drive into 2 drives, One contains all the boot files and the other contains the flash.ibr file.


On a Windows 10 PC I can see both of these as seperate drives, but if I try to copy the files over to another USB drive (that has been formated using Thin Update) then when I come to use the image it fails at 0% stating that it can't find the Flash.IBR file, even though it reports that it has found it when booting up the Thin Client with the USB stick installed.


So what i'm tring to do is:

1. Upload the image to a shared drive.

2. Copy this image to another USB stick.

3. Use the USB stick to install the image on a new  T530 thin client.


Hopefully some one can help with this issue.

If you have multiple thin clients in your environment, then you can use HP Device Manager.  You can download the latest HPDM software from the below links:

I am tring to do the same thing, I have an image from a T520 that I would like to use for a T530. This is just a one off, we  will not be getting more thin clients anytime soon. Can I accomplish this without using Device Manager?
