Hi I have installed MDT2010 (sp1) on a 2008R2 server and the various components (WAIK)
I added the DVD boot image and then created a reference image.
I placed the boot image in WDS.
I then customised the reference image and sysprep/captured it.
I am able to get a bare metal machine or existing xp machine on the network to boot via F12 into the WDS wizard and the have W7 custom image installed.
This however is only one at a time.
I now want to do say 50 XP Pc's and with as lite a touch as possible i.e all automated.
I haven't used any unattend stuff thus far or even doen much to my boot.ini or custom settings.
I have 2 questions:
1. Does the custom install image need to be loaded into WDS or can I get multiple machines to just boot from WDS then use MDT to get the image? When I tried loading the Install image it then wouldn't recognise the boot image so had to use the standard windows boot image!?
2. Where should I be editing the unattend stuff? I heared it needs to be in 2 places? MDt and WDS?
I don't want to have to enter the domain or partition or credentials, time zone, or any of that!
Many thanks to anyone who can assist.
