Installing Windows Vista

Destination computers must support booting from the network. Windows DS uses PXE technology to boot from the network and start the Windows DS client. You must also ensure that the also ensure that the computer’s BIOS is configured to boot from the network.

To install Windows Vista from Windows DS

1.
Start or reboot the destination computer.

2.
When the destination computer starts and the Windows DS boot loader prompts you to press F12, press F12 to download and start the Windows DS client. Make sure you’ve enabled network boot in the computer’s BIOS.

3.
On the Windows Deployment Services page, choose a locale and keyboard layout, and then click Next.

4.
When prompted to connect to the Windows DS server, type account and password to use for the connection, and then click OK.

5.
On the Select The Operating System You Want To Install page, choose an operating system image, and then click Next.

6.
On the Where Do You Want To Install Windows page, choose a partition on which to install Windows Vista, and then click Next. To repartition the disk using advanced options, click Drive Options (Advanced).

7.
Windows Setup will install Windows Vista, prompting for required settings that are not specified in an unattended-setup answer file.

Capturing Custom Images

Windows DS can deploy more than just default images from the Windows Vista media. You can create custom boot images and install images, and then import them into Windows DS for automated distribution.

To create a custom installation image for Windows DS, you must first install an existing image on a destination computer, customize it, and then capture the destination computer. Image capture is a two-step process. First, you must create a Windows PE capture image to support for the image-capture process. Then you capture an image from a system that has been prepared for imaging using the Sysprep utility.

To create an image-capture image

1.
Click the Boot Images item in the Windows DS console tree.

Right-click the image to use as a capture image, and then click Create Capture Boot Image.

2.
On the Capture Image Metadata page, type a name and description for the capture image, and then specify the location and file name of the image file to create. Click Next to create the capture image.


3.
Click Finish.

4.
Import the custom capture boot image .

To create a custom Windows Vista install image

1.
Create a master installation by installing a Windows Vista image and then customizing the installation to meet your requirements. You can install Windows Vista on your master computer either from media or using Windows DS.

2.
From a command prompt on the master computer, change directories to \Windows\System32\Sysprep and run the following command:

sysprep /oobe /generalize /reboot


3.
When the reference computer reboots and the Windows DS boot loader prompts you to press F12, press F12 to download and start the Windows DS client. Make sure you’ve enabled network boot in the computer’s BIOS.

4.
In Windows Boot Manager, select the capture boot image.

5.
On the Windows Deployment Wizard Image Capture Wizard, click Next.

6.
On the Image Capture Source page, choose the volume to capture from the Volume To Capture list, and then provide a name and description for the image. Click Next to continue.

7.
On the Image Capture Destination page, click Browse to choose the location where you want to store the captured image. In the File Name text box, type a name for the image using the .wim file name extension and then click Save. Click Upload Image To WDS Server, and then type the name of the WDS server and click Connect. If prompted for credentials, provide a user name and password for an account with sufficient privileges to connect to the WDS server. Choose the image group in which to store the image from the Image Group list.

8.
Click Finish.

Using Windows DS with BDD 2007

For LTI, BDD 2007 generates Windows PE boot images that connect to the deployment point and starts the Windows Deployment Wizard. The Windows Deployment Wizard allows the user to select an operating build to configure, applications to install, and so on.

BDD 2007 generates boot images when you update deployment points. BDD 2007 generates .iso image files that you can burn to DVD. You then use the DVD to start destination computers. BDD 2007 also generates Windows PE .wim boot images that you can add to Windows DS. Starting the BDD 2007 Windows PE boot images by using Windows DS is more convenient and quicker than using DVDs. You find these boot images in the BDD 2007 distribution share under the Boot folder. 


BDD 2007 can also use Windows Vista installation images from Windows DS. By doing so, you can use installation sources that already exist in a Windows DS server without duplicating the files in a BDD 2007 distribution share. This requires that you copy Wdsclientapi.dll, Wdscsl.dll, and Wdsimage.dll from the Sources folder of the Windows Vista media to the folder C:\Program Files\BDD 2007\bin. It also requires that at least one Windows Vista source exists within the distribution share and that you create and update a lab deployment point. BDD 2007 uses the setup program files from distribution share to install the Windows Vista image from the Windows DS server.

To add images from Windows DS to a BDD 2007 distribution share

1.
Add a full set of Windows Vista source files to the BDD 2007 distribution share.

2.
Copy the following files from the Sources folder of the Windows Vista media to the folder C:\Program Files\BDD 2007\bin:

  • Wdsclientapi.dll

  • Wdscsl.dll

  • Wdsimage.dll

3.
In the BDD 2007 Deployment Workbench console tree, right-click Operating Systems under Distribution Share, and then click New to start the New OS Wizard.

4.
On the Choose The Type Of Operating System To Add page, select Windows Deployment Services Images, and then click Next to add an image from a Windows DS server to the distribution share.

5.
On the Select The Windows Deployment Services Server page, type the name of the Windows DS server from which to add the operating system images, and then click Next.

6.
Deployment Workbench adds all of the installation images it finds in Windows DS to Operating Systems.
