If you completed the basic Windows OS in-place migration procedure using the Only Download Base Layer option, you can now apply the base layer to downloaded CVDs.

About this task

The basic migration operation that you ran with the Only Download Base Layer option created a Migration Download task that contains the CVDs you selected. At the end of that operation, the Windows 7, Windows 8.1, or Windows 10 image that downloaded to individual endpoints is either ongoing or completed. See Perform Basic Windows OS In-Place Migration, but applying the CVDs is not started.

You must now apply the image to the endpoints.

You can apply all the CVDs that have finished downloading, or you can select specific CVDs to apply first. You can then apply the remaining CVDs in additional cycles.

If not all the CVDs in the task, or in your selection of CVDs, are finished downloading, you can additionally choose to wait until all CVDs are downloaded, or apply the ones that have finished. You can then apply the remaining CVDs in additional cycles as they finish downloading.
