WinPE on USB and WDS
Posted on 2011-09-05
I am having problems with GHOST so I installed WDS (Windows Deployment Services) to install a custom image on 78 Optiplex 380s. By default the Optiplex 380s DO NOT have PXE boot enabled in the BIOS. I don't want to update the BIOS settings on all 78 computers just to boot to the WDS server.
Can I create a USB boot key that will boot to WinPE and connect to the deployment server? I have the network drivers, etc if necessary. If yes, how do I create a WinPE USB to connect to WDS?
Thanks in advance for your help,
