Deploy Windows Vista using SCCM 2007 SP1

by Marin Franković on 20 October, 2008

Recently I had to prepare for a lecture on deploying Windows Vista with SCCM 2007. Here you can see short procedure on how to configure SCCM to deploy Vista to “bare metal” computers. I will not cover the instalation of SCCM 2007 and SQL 2005 SP2 server.

– Install and configure WDS (do not add any images, do not accept any client requests,?set delay to 1 sec. or more)
– Set boundary for SCCM 2007
– Set Action Account
– Install PXE service on SCCM 2007
– Create instalation package for SCCM agent and publish it to DP
– Create Boot Image and publish it ot DP and PXE DP
– Create Install Package (install.wim) and publish it to DP
– Create source install package (complete Vista directory) and publish it to DP
– Create Driver packages and publish it to DP
– Create new collection
– Import computer information into newly created collection
– Create task sequence
– Advertise task sequence to newly created collection

Tips and tricks:

– If testing in Virtual Server environment make sure that internal DHCP server on Virtual network adapter is disabled
– Check validity period of self signed certificate on PXE service
– Create boot.wim image foom vinpe.wim file which you can find in WAIK
– If deploying to Virtual machine inject only network drivers into boot.wim image
– Redeploy boot.wim image to PXE and standard DP
