Hi,
   We earlier used to reimage our systems using .gho image files. Now we have a WDS + MDT 2010 setup in place. Can we use our older ghost images(WIN XP) in our new environement? If yes, then how? Is there a way to convert (.gho+.ghs) files into a .wim file? How should i go ahead to boot the client systems? Can i create a single .iso file which would take me through the entire OS installation as is done using an OS media when we download it?
   Please suggest how should i go ahead to reimage our new systems?

Regards
Ravi

Look  in  ID:21430447 - there is no way to convert it.
Create a new images from your new deployment environment.

ok Tominov,
   So does that mean i need to reimage my reference computer using the older image and then recapture it through my WDS server after syspreping? So that i get a new .wim file for deploying ?
