Best Practice: Working with Win7 32Bit & 64Bit Versions in MDT 2012

    Question

  • Whats the recommended way for producing bootable media using MDT2012 that would support 32 and 64 bit versions of Windows 7?

    Should I have 2 deployment shares or do I import the 2 operating systems source dvd's into the same deployment share?

    is it possible to create 32 & 64Bit bootable media from 1 deployment share and if so what settings would I need to modify in the task sequence & advanced configs to allow me to do so?

  • No problemt to run both x86 and x64 in the same deploymentshare.

    Yes you can create both 32 and 64 bits boot media (winpe) in one deployment share.

    In the properties of you deploymentshare, general tab you choose if you want to support both x86 & x64.

  • Hi Henrik,

    Thanks for replying I also created an additional task sequence and set the appropriate OS details before updating the share and media and now have 1 bootable iso that works for 32 or 64bit hardware
