Manual installation process

Create unattended.xml with Windows SIM (WAIK)

Copyfileto USB stick

Save usersdocumentsandsettings(Easy transfer)

Installation of Windows 7



Activate Windows

Manual Installation Process


Create Unattended.inf withWindows System Image Manager (SIM)

Standard image process part i

Analyze application compatibility (ACT)

Prepare a boot device for capturing images (Win PE)

Install Windows 7 on the reference computer

Customize the Windows 7 Installation (Install Applications)

Start in audit mode to finish preparing the image (sysprep /audit)

Prepare to capture the image (sysprep /generalize)

Standard Image Process (Part I)

Standard image process part ii

Capture an image of the reference computer (Win PE & Image X)

Create media for installing the custom image(Unattend.xml + boot media with new WIM file)

Save usersdocumentsandsettings

Installthecustom Windows 7 image


Activate Windows 7

Standard Image Process (Part II)

Standard image limitations

Doesn’t scale

Works best with one image

Works best when you rarely change images(Sysprep limits)

Standard Image Limitations

Automated installation part i

Assess your company’s readiness (MAP)

Analyze application compatibility (ACT)

Prepare infrastructure for deployment(MDT 2010, WAIK , WDS / SCCM)

Create a deployment share

Build a task sequence that installs Windows 7

Create boot images (Win PE)

Copy boot images to a portable storage device

Automated Installation (Part I)

Automated installation part ii

Deploy Windows 7 to each computer (WDS or SCCM)

Activate Windows 7

Automated Installation (Part II)


Create TaskSequencewith MDT 2010

Os deployment with sccm
OS Deployment with SCCM

  • Highly automated solution for assessing, migrating and deploying windows server and client operating systems

  • Common toolset and process

  • End-to-end deployment automation support

  • Assess migration readiness

  • Built in reports for minimum and recommended settings

  • Enable dynamic deployment of drivers at runtime

  • Organize, replicate and deploy packages

  • Utilize Windows PnP detection

Sccm deployment architecture
SCCM DeploymentArchitecture

Steps in old OS

Steps in WinPE

Steps in new OS

Bare Metal starts here

The task sequencer
The Task Sequencer

  • Core OS deployment mechanism

  • Delivered to clients as policy via MP

  • Sequence of steps to execute

  • Steps prior to deploying new OS

  • Steps in Windows PE to deploy new OS

  • Steps after the new OS is deployed

  • Completely hands-off for full automation of the process

  • Built-in actions provided within product

  • Custom actions command line driven, Vbscript, Batch etc.

Driver catalog

“Drivers” node

Import drivers into this node

Set properties on drivers (metadata)

Assign drivers to Driver Packages

“Driver Packages” node

Configuration Manager packages that are copied to DPs

Typically group related drivers into one package

Benefits of multicast

These are end-to-end times for OS installation. Times are measured from first client reboot to last client displaying desktop.

The major limiting factor is TFTP download of the boot image when using multicast to transfer the install image – with the current TFTP server, we’re limited to about 30MB/sec. This means, with 250 clients, we’re spending ~17 minutes downloading the boot image

Server was connected at 1Gbps, clients connected at 100Mbps

Image size was ~3.5GB
