# Windows Templates for Packer
Windows Packer Templates
### Introduction
This repository contains Windows templates that can be used to create boxes for Vagrant using Packer ([Website]( ([Github](
This repo began by borrowing bits from the VeeWee Windows templates ( Modifications were made to work with Packer and the VMware Fusion provider for Packer and Vagrant.
### Getting Started
This repository assumes that you have access to [MSDN]( and can download the ISO images Microsoft makes available there.
Currently, this repo expects you to do a little heavy lifting to get the Windows ISO required to build boxes.
1. Download the Windows Server 2008 R2 with Service Pack 1 (x64) - DVD (English) ISO (`en_windows_server_2008_r2_with_sp1_x64_dvd_617601.iso`)
2. Verify that `en_windows_server_2008_r2_with_sp1_x64_dvd_617601.iso` has an MD5 hash of `8dcde01d0da526100869e2457aafb7ca` (Microsoft lists a SHA1 hash of `d3fd7bf85ee1d5bdd72de5b2c69a7b470733cd0a`, which is equivalent)
3. Clone this repo to a local directory
4. Create a directory named `iso` in the root of the repo
5. Move `en_windows_server_2008_r2_with_sp1_x64_dvd_617601.iso` to the `iso` directory
6. Run `packer build windows.json`
### Contributing
Pull requests welcomed. I plan to include other variants of Windows 2008 R2 and Windows 2012 next.
