  • Hi,


    Have you installed Windows Server 2003 SP2? If so, RIS is replaced with Windows Deployment Services (WDS). The Windows Deployment Services is the updated and redesigned version of Remote Installation Services (RIS).


    To install WDS, please refer to the following article:


    Step-by-Step Guide for Windows Deployment Services in Windows Server 2003



    If Windows Server 2003 SP2 has not been installed on your system, you can refer to the following article to install RIS:


    Install Remote Installation Services



    Hope it helps.
