Operating System Deployment support in SCCM 2007 SP2

Recommended Posts

This post is just to clarify what Operating Systems are supported for Deployment using SCCM 2007 SP2.



Operating System Deployment in Configuration Manager 2007 SP2 requires the Windows 7 Windows Automated Installation Kit 2.0 release (version 6.1.7600) otherwise known as WAIK 2.0. The Windows AIK (version 1.0 for Configuration Manager 2007 or version 1.1 for Configuration Manager 2007 SP1) must be uninstalled from the SMS Provider computer and the computer must be restarted before beginning the upgrade process. When the site is upgraded to SP2, the Windows AIK 2.0 will be installed on the SMS Provider computer.



The default boot images Boot image (x86) and Boot image (x64) under the Boot Images node will be replaced with new boot images based on Windows PE 3.0 from the Windows AIK 2.0. When the default boot images have been customized and use the default names, the customizations will be lost as part of the upgrade process. Device driver additions from the Configuration Manager Drivers node will be maintained in the new boot images. It is recommended that existing boot images are backed up before upgrading to Configuration Manager 2007 SP2.





Windows AIK 2.0 (from SCCM 2007 SP2) supports deployment of the following operating systems:


* Windows Vista with SP1

* Windows 7

* Windows Server 2008

* Windows Server 2008 R2



The following Operating systems do not require Windows AIK but can be deployed by using Configuration Manager 2007 SP2:


* Windows 2000

* Windows XP

* Windows Server 2003



Operating System Deployment in Configuration Manager 2007 SP2 only supports capturing or applying Windows Vista operating system images for Windows Vista with SP1 because Windows AIK 2.0 does not support Windows Vista with no service pack applied.
