Where does new boot image go after updating deployment share


The main point of MDT and WDS is to place Windows on a computer’s disk drive.

To do this, MDT uses a series of steps in a task sequence that perform the necessary operations to facilitate installation. Networking between the MDT/WDS server and the target clients must be clear and working.

Each time a deployment share is updated in MDT the drivers and settings contained within that share are added to a boot WIM and a boot ISO that is used to connect to the MDT server.

Once I download and extract the drivers, I import them into MDT the normal way, but into their own folder within the driver store.

Just like I create folders for the operating system and platform, I also create a Windows PE folder at the same level.

Open the deployment snap-in (%windir%\system32\Wds Mgmt.msc) and: If you only have 1 image like I did you’ll now see 2 different boot images.

If you don’t want to see a boot selection screen when you boot your machines off PXE, just right-click a boot image and select disable so its not used.

OEMs like Dell and Lenovo make Windows PE drivers available for their hardware, which makes it easy to organize those resources.
