Network Booting with MDT Deployment RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Everyone,

    I have just started playing around with the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit and MDS, but it really seems to have a lot of potential and ability to really customize installs.   

    However, I am at a bit of a loss for how to deploy captured .wim images over the network using PXE or something similar so that a boot disk is not required.  Can anybody provide some insight into how that works?

    Also, at what point can the boot disk with the lite touch image be removed from the machine?  Once the menu pops up and you select the image you want to deploy, is everything loaded into memory already, or do I need to leave the disk in until first restart?

    Thanks in advance!
