    Exclamation WDS Network

    Hello,
    So I'm setting up WDS, it's all configured etc. however I wish to create ONE image for lots of different machines.
    Well, two; Pupil and Staff.

    I want it to domain, ask what to name it and then run the image!

    Is there any way of doing this using WDS?
    If so, please can someone help me with it!
    Thanks.

    Hello, do I install this on the same server as WDS? Also, does the 2013 toolkit run on 2008R2?

    I've configured this, how do I ensure it will run when booting from PXE?

    Might sound like a silly question, boot how do I go about generating the boot image within MDT?
    It created the .XML file?

    on the left right click your deployment share and click update deployment share. then go to mdt add a boot image of probably d:\deploymentshare\boot\LiteTouchPE_x64.wim

    I'm still slightly confused, is this in WDS I do this?

    no in mdt. Thatbgenerates a boot image for your mdt deploymentshare which youn add to wds so you can boot into it

    Hello,
    It seems that there isn't such an option?

    Sorry, do you have an email address? It might be a bit easier - that's if you're happier to help!

    To clarify MDT is separate from WDS. WDS is only used to distribute the PXE boot image.

    The rest is done with MDT including injecting drivers, task sequences and automation.

    The more you know...

    I went straight from WDS to SCCM and bypassed MDT. I always assumed it was just an add-on for WDS!

    it sort of is. Ylou can use mdt without wds but its a bit pointless unless all your pcs are standalone
