Hello,
on a 2K8 R2 server WDS has been implemented and on a shared folder contains an image for deployment WIN7 though PXE boot.
Now on the folder of this image contains:

\$OEM$
\Operating Systems (which contains the WIM image)
\Applications (which contains installer for Acrobat, Winzip and Office 2003)
\Drivers

Now I  tried to put the above folders on a USB stick formatted and bootable, without success.
In the best case start the standard installation of WIN7 instead of custom image.

Anybody knows how to transfer a working WDS image from shared folder onto USB stick so deployment can be done from USB instead of network ?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for link. I checked but my concern was how to boot from usb an existing wds image.
However I was able to start from USB using LiteTouchPE custom image.

Now I can boot from USB, install the image but at first reboot gives me an error because the mapped drive of USB stick is changed and can't continue the installation of additional packages defined in the original WDS setup.
