WDS & Win7
Currently bought a batch of new PC's, we have server 2008 r2. I am looking at imaging the PC's using WDS. Heres what I have done so far:
Installed all software/updates on PC to how I want
Installed the WDS role on the server
I have tried a few times to upload the install.wim and boot.wim files to the server then tried to add drivers to the boot.wim file however not having much joy.
The PC I have is a HP 3300
where does it fail?
how are you trying to upload them to the server?
what boot.wim are you uploading to server?
(unless you want to install a fresh version of windows with 0 customisation there isnt much point uploading install.wim)
how are you adding the drivers to boot.wim dism/imagesx or through the menu?
have you sysprepped the pc you want to pull and created a capture image as you need a capture image to get an image (deploy to fire out) and it wont image a non sysprepped pc
I am using the boot.wim and install.wim from the windows 7 installtion disc.
I am trying to inject drivers using the menu option under the drivers tab within WDS.
Also the PC is sysprepped.
I found this video helpful when updating my .WIM images:
