We have System Center 2012 R2 and are upgrading our remote locations to Windows 7 utilizing it. In the past we have brought a server to the location and have deployed from the server, but we are now investigating how to deploy using stand-alone media -- a USB thumb drive.
It's my understanding that when you build a stand-alone media installation, SCCM copies everything -- task sequences, applications, and packages to the thumb drive, so requirements for a network are limited to none.
I don't foresee any issues with installing applications, but packages are different. With packages we need to reference a path and a program to launch. What's options are there to reference these files when you use OS deployment from a thumb drive using System Center's "Build with Media" option?
