SCCM 2012 RTM to SP1 to R2 Boot Images Migration What steps to be consider RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are Migrating SCCm 2012 to SP1 then to R2…

    My question would be specific to Boot images.

    We are in RTM edition, we have different boot images got created by our Imaging guys, These boot Images also have network/mass storage drivers are added along with some WINPE Back Group screen wallpaper, when cross checked the boot image properties. And finally these the Boot Images are distributed to all the required distribution points.

    Help me to understand what are the action steps to be taken now? In the process of RTM to SP1 and R2

  • From RTM to SP1, the upgrade process will upgrade your WinPE 3.x boot images to WinPE 4.0 (if it can). From SP1 to R2, the upgrade process will not upgrade your boot images but will instead create new ones. Only WinPE 5.0 and WinPE 3.1 boot images are supported by R2 -- the 3.1 boot images are meant for supporting XP since WInPE 5.0 doesn't support XP (God help you if you're still on XP though).

    Thus, you need to get your "imaging" guys to create new WinPE 5.0 boot images.

  • You simply set your task sequences to use these new boot images and test.
