Introduction

Welcome to the Configure Network Installation of Windows Practice Lab. In this module you will be provided with the instructions and devices needed to develop your hands-on skills.

Learning Outcomes

In this module, you will complete the following exercises:

  • Exercise 1 - Prepare System Requirements for Windows Deployment Services
  • Exercise 2 - Perform Remote Installation of Windows

After completing this lab, you will be able to:

  • Configure the system prerequisites for a successful deployment of Windows 10 using Windows Deployment Services
  • Verify successful deployment of Windows 10 to a new computer using Windows Deployment Services

Exam Objectives

The following exam objectives are covered in this lab:

  • Understand installation types - Perform network installations

Lab Duration

It will take approximately 1 hour to complete this lab.

Exercise 1 - Prepare System Requirements for Windows Deployment Services

Windows Deployment Services (WDS) is a Windows server feature that simplifies the rollout of Windows desktop operating systems such as Windows 10 and earlier versions on new equipment without requiring IT personnel visit each computer or install directly using CD or DVD media.

Remote installation of Windows operating system occurs when a WDS client boots up using a network interface card that supports Preboot Execute Environment (PXE) specification. The client then connects to WDS server which runs the Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) service and hosts the Windows 10 boot files and installs images. When the network connection between WDS client and server is successfully established, the operating system setup continues nearly hands-free with a few system prompts to complete the installation process

In this exercise, you will prepare the system requirements for a successful configuration of Windows Deployment Services.

Exercise 2 - Perform Remote Installation of Windows

After setting up the system requirements for successfully implementing remote OS installation using Windows Deployment Services, you will test if WDS clients can connect to the WDS server and install the operating system.

In this exercise, you will perform remote OS deployment of Windows 10 to a bare-metal computer.
