Image Customization

The manufacturing process culminates with a Windows device that delivers a quality Windows experience.

Building that device begins with a crucial step in a long chain of events that originates from an “ideal” image on a source computer. This crucial step is image customization. When customers turn on their Windows 8.1 PCs the first time, OOBE (Out of Box Experience) displays. OOBE is a series of screens that require them to make crucial choices and enter info for their PC’s customized experience. For example, the customer will select which language they want for their display.
