Capturing Images with BDD 2007

In BDD 2007, creating an image is essentially a Lite Touch installation (LTI) process (containing applications, language packs, and various customizations), which ends by capturing an image of the destination computer in the lab. The following list outlines the overall process (illustrated in Figure 1) for using Deployment Workbench to create and capture operating system images:

  • Prepare the distribution share Prepare the distribution share by storing operating system source files, applications, out-of-box device drivers, and packages in it. 

  • Create and configure a build A build associates an operating system with an unattended-setup answer file (Unattend.xml) and a sequence of tasks to run during installation, also called a task sequence. A build essentially represents an operating system configuration, including a product key, installation and configuration tasks, and other settings. 

  • Create and configure a lab deployment point A deployment point provides the information necessary to connect to the distribution share and install a build from it. Some deployment points are copies of the distribution share that you can distribute to other locations. Lab deployment points always connect to the distribution share directly, however. Deployment points also provide the Windows PE boot images necessary to start destination computers and connect to the deployment point.

  • Run the Windows Deployment Wizard on the lab computer Start the destination lab computer using the Windows PE image that the lab deployment point provides, and then install a build from the distribution share. During the initial interview, the Windows Deployment Wizard will prompt you whether to create a custom image after LTI is complete. 

  • Add the custom image as an operating system source After capturing the custom image, you add it to the distribution share as an operating system source. You can then deploy this custom image by using LTI or ZTI (Zero Touch Installation).

Navigating Deployment Workbench

To start Deployment Workbench, click Start, point to All Programs, point to BDD 2007, and then click Deployment Workbench. The console tree shows the following items:

  • Information Center This item provides access to the documentation, breaking news about BDD 2007, and the components required for using Deployment Workbench.Figure 2 shows Deployment Workbench with all items expanded and the News item selected.

    Figure 2. Deployment Workbench.
  • Distribution Share Under this item are the operating systems, applications, operating system packages, and out-of-box drivers that the distribution share contains. Files you add to the distribution share are simply source files that BDD 2007 uses to create builds.

  • Builds You see a list of builds in the details pane. Builds associate source files from the distribution share, particularly operating systems, with configurations (settings and task sequences).

  • Deploy The Deploy item contains two items below it: Deployment Points and Database. In Deployment Points, you see a list of deployment points in the details pane. Deployment points contain the settings and files necessary to install builds from the distribution share or copies of the distribution share. In Database, you see the BDD 2007 database. 

Note

The default view in Deployment Workbench includes the action pane. The action pane often gets in the way of viewing the entire details pane. You can remove the action pane by authoring the management console. To author the console, run C:\Program Files\BDD 2007\Bin\BDDWorkbench.msc /a. Click View, click Customize, clear the Action Pane check box, and then click OK. Save your changes by clicking File, and then clicking Save on the main menu. When prompted whether you want to display a single window interface, click Yes.
