I was just wondering if it is possible to have both clean and dirty (Installing OS on a partition without wiping out all others, Dual Boot etc) installations setup using MDT 2010 Update1.
Let me tell you what I have accomplished till now. I have managed to do an LTI in such a way that the user has to do a PXE boot and select the OS. After that everything is fully automated i.e. partitioning and formatting the disk; Installing OS+AV+Reqd Software. All this is done based on the model of machine the end user is using and his concerned department.
I have changed my customsettings.ini and bootstrap.ini files accordingly.
The challenge at hand for me now is to incorporate dirty installation as well; as sometimes the user wants a clean format on a build machine without loosing data on another partition and the current options of mine will not ask for anything except OS type.
However, I have never disabled the refresh scenario in any of the Task sequence so i cannot get it over my head as to why that option is not being shown at the time of PXE boot. I`m pasting the bootstrap.ini file below for you guys to have a look.
Thanks in anticipation

I figured it out myself, i knew it was possible but i didn't know how to do it. If you wish to have a parallel/dirty installation done then you have two options.
1. Boot the computer normally and goto deploymentshare and run the lite touch.vbs.
2. Make a new task sequence -- select install OS on next available formatted partition and disable new computer only in the task sequence. The next time you do a PXE boot and select the required OS with the task sequence, it'll go ahead and do a dual boot.
P.S. The solution provided here has been achieved by trial and error and is not the absolute or the only solution and I am not assuring that this will work, please consult an expert and get this sorted out before you deploy.
