(Windows Deployment (WDS) legacy images

I have an existing Windows 2003 WDS server in mixed mode with a number of LEGACY images on it (from RIS), we are shortly going to move Windows 2008 (new hardware, fresh install) but I need my legacy images to work:
- Can Windows 2008 WDS even exist in mixed mode?
- Can I move my legacy images from my 2003-2008 server?
- Can I migrate ALL my WDS images (boot images, install images etc) from 2003-2008?

Thanks

I'm pretty sure you will have to convert your old RIS images to WIMs to work on Server 2008's WDS.  Take a look at this step by step guide as it does discuss some of the questions you asked.

2008 can not exist in mixed mode, for the conversion to work it will need to be a 2003-2008 upgrade install.
