WDS and Vista
We have started playing with WDS and the deployment of Vista clients. We ordered our Vista Business disk and it arrived. We set it all up but soon discovered that it was an upgrade disk and didn't perform a clean install.
Instead it simply upgraded XP.
Not good enough for us. So we phoned our providers and it seems you can only get the 'full' Vista Business if you are part of the Select Agreement. YOu cannot get the disks with a volume licence key if you are not part of this.
Naturally we trust our supplier in this matter, but does anyone know any different?
if its VL then all OS's are upgrades only are they not?
If you have Software Assurance, as we do, you get the full Vista Enterprise VL
A quick look on our MVLS site seems to suggest we have both Full and Upgrades available
We are on School 3 Program BTW...
Maybe it is the Software Assurance scheme we need to be part of. How much does that cost?
