The Install and Configure Windows Deployment Service module provides you with the instructions and devices to develop your hands on skills in the following topics.

  • Configure Windows Deployment Services
  • Update Images with Patches and Drivers

Exercise 1 - Configure Windows Deployment Services

Windows Deployment Services (WDS) enables you to remotely deploy Windows operating systems such as Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2 to bare metal computers. Remote deployment is done using network-based installation. This means you can perform the installation even when you are not physically present at a computer or do not have the installation files on an installation media like a DVD or a USB drive.

In this exercise, you will perform remote OS deployment on a bare-metal computer.

Exercise 2 - Update Images with Patches and Drivers

Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (WADK) is a suite of utilities that you can use to customise, assess and rollout Windows operating systems to new computers.
