  1. Hi guys, I stumbled across this site through google and I think this might be the best place for me to ask some broad (as well as some very pointed) questions about the whole thing. First off, this acronym soup is killing me. I've got a pretty healthy list of things I need to remember now. With that being said, here is what I currently am doing to deploy Windows 7 to our computers (Mostly Dells): 1. Use MDT to add applications, out-of-box drivers (organized into Operating system, then machine model), and a custom task sequence to rename the primary partition "Local Disk". 2. Add the Lite Touch iso created by MDT into WDS. Do a normal WDS deployment via PXE So my questions really are these: 1. Is this a reasonable way to do it? 2. How can I improve it to make it as automated as possible? 3. Where does WSIM come into play? I would love to be able to define some settings, but also they very from computer to computer slightly. Can I create multiple autounattend.xml files that all use the same install.wim file? 4. How can I set the computer name automatically to be the dell service tag during install instead of declaring it during the Deployment Wizard? 5. How do I update my install.wim file with new Windows Updates offline (by NOT installing Windows onto a reference machine and capturing a new wim file)? 6. In a general sense, can I continue to do most things in MDT and then use WDS to actually push the OS out? Is that the standard method? Thanks! Brian
