    New Deployment Book

    Received this email today. It might be of interest to people here:

    Hi, dear deployment geek.

    In January I teamed up with my good friend - and fellow Microsoft Setup & Deployment MVP - Mikael Nystrom, to write a book on Windows Deployment using MDT 2010 Lite Touch and WDS… Now, four months later, we are finally done.

    I’m very proud to announce the availability of the first real world book on deploying Windows 7 (and Windows XP) using MDT 2010 Lite Touch and WDS. The book covers end to end deployment, inventory, applications (even ugly ones), real drivers, real hardware, real problems, real network environments and of course, real world solutions.

    Deployment Fundamentals – Volume 1: Deploying Windows clients using MDT 2010 Lite Touch
    http://www.amazon.com/Deployment-Fundamentals-Deploying-Windows-clients/dp/1451570031

    Regards / Johan Arwidmark
    Microsoft MVP – Setup & Deployment

    I've not ordered it yet - but has anyone else seen it?


    Cheers


    Gareth

    It's not on the UK Amazon - that link is broken btw. I'm interested in buying it once I've done my MCTS in win 7 config.

    This link should work: http://amzn.com/1451570031.

    I think I might get a copy once it appears on Amazon.co.uk. It looks like it could be really useful.

    By the way, have you seen this free eBook from Microsoft since it covers MDT 2010 too?

    Yes I've seen this. I've asked Computer Manuals to see if they can get the book into the UK.

    Your Amazon link doesn't work for me either. I think it's because it is prefixed with this: https://swansea-edunet.gov.uk/OWA/redir.aspx?C=40c4042271c840ad9e2fc91273490e6f&URL=.

    Let us know how you get on with Computer Manuals.

    I got the email as well as I had signed up for his deployment cd before.

    Interested in getting it and may look at ordering it from the states if possible.

    Hmm...wonder if its likely to ever make it to the UK or if its worth ordering from the US

    Would be a great book to have. After 3 days of struggle and conflicting information on the net, I've got some of MDT and Lite Touch working howe I want, but its not perfect yet

    Well I've ordered it from Amazon so people are welcome to hold off until it arrives here and I will review it for you all before you waste your hard earned cash.

    I was also looking at getting this, but I'll hold off until after you've got your copy

    Amazon sent this on Friday so it should hopefully arrive from the US sometime this week.

    On another note, I notice I posted this to the Windows 7 forum instead of the Deployment Forum - perhaps it would be better moved into there.

    Like Gareth I ordered a copy from Amazon.com last Friday and received it in the post this morning. From the very brief look I have had, it looks great so far. The step-by-step instructions are very easy to follow and things are explained really well. The main reason I purchased it was the chapter on deploying Windows XP using MDT 2010 and how to use VMware Workstation to create WIM images. Almost everything I have learnt so far about MDT has been via trial-and-error so it will be good to know the correct way to do things.
