Create your custom Quick Create VM gallery

Have you ever wondered whether it is possible to add your own custom images to the list of available VMs for Quick Create?

The answer is: Yes, you can!

Since quite a few people have been asking us, this post will give you a quick example to get started and add your own custom image while we’re working on the official documentation. The following two steps will be described in this blog post:

  1. Create JSON document describing your image
  2. Add this JSON document to the list of galleries to include

Step 1: Create JSON document describing your image

The first thing you will need is a JSON document which describes the image you want to have showing up in quick create. The following snippet is a sample JSON document which you can adapt to your own needs. We will publish more documentation on this including a JSON schema to run validation as soon as it is ready.

To calculate the SHA256 hashes for the linked files you can use different tools. Since it is already available on Windows 10 machines, I like to use a quick PowerShell call: Get-FileHash -Path .contoso_logo.png -Algorithm SHA256
The values for logo, symbol, and thumbnail are optional, so if there are no images at hand, you can just remove these values from the JSON document.

Step 2: Add this JSON document to the list of galleries to include

To have your custom gallery image show up on a Windows 10 client, you need to set the GalleryLocations registry value under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionVirtualization.
There are multiple ways to achieve this, you can adapt the following PowerShell snippet to set the value:

If you don’t want to include the official Windows 10 developer evaluation images, just remove the fwlink from the GalleryLocations value.

Have fun creating your own VM galleries and stay tuned for our official documentation. We’re looking forward to see what you create!

For Sale – Asus ROG 27″ PG278Q Monitor 2560×1440

Blackmesa, you’ve been trading on here a long time and should understand the rules by now. The first offer you made I can overlook because as Wildkarrde pointed out, it was made 3 days before the seller responded – which isn’t great in itself – and it would be difficult justifying an agreed deal on that basis.

However, for you to agree again, usurping another offer in the process, before disappearing for two weeks is extremely poor trading conduct. All members are encouraged to check threads every day. This includes thread starters and those who have posted offers in said threads. Saying you haven’t had the chance doesn’t wash unfortunately because it takes no more than 3 minutes to check a thread and that excuse it becomes even more absurd when you can use your smartphone on the fly.

One month trading ban issued. In future, I suggest you check the threads you are involved in daily.

For Sale – MacBook Pro (not retina) 13” Late 2011 model + a 2015 11″ MacBook Air

MacBook Pro (not retina)
13”
Late 2011 model – bought by me from the Apple Refurb Store in March 2012
IMG_2730.JPG
Manufactured Jan 2012
2.8 GHz Intel Core i7
8 GB memory
1TB Crucial SSD (fitted by me) (£250 upgrade)
Integral SuperDrive DVD rewriter

This has been used as my regular machine whenever I’ve not been at my desk using my iMac. It has been well looked after and comes from a smoke free environment.

I have a proper Apple box, but it is from another machine.

There are no dead pixels, there are NO dents on the case but there are some age related small marks.

It has never put a foot wrong and is still a quick and impressive machine.

I’ve been setting up a new 13.3-inch Macbook Pro 2.9GHz Dual-core Intel Core i5 for a friend, and the new machine is a little faster, but not that noticeable.

The 1TB SSD is very quick. I fitted it myself and makes start up very fast. From 0 to login screen in 18 seconds.

Battery condition is good according to coconut. 910 cycles.

I have a brand new spare battery that I will include. It was £35 and classed as an OEM replacement.
Comes with the charger (no frays)
£525 including RMSD

Price and currency: £525
Delivery: Delivery cost is included within my country
Payment method: BT, PPG or cash on collection
Location: Oswestry
Advertised elsewhere?: Advertised elsewhere
Prefer goods collected?: I have no preference
