How to use WDS to simply deploy an Image

Recommended Posts

Hi there,


I am able to gather and deploy an Image of a Windows 7 computer using the attached answer file and a vbs script that will join the name and I can enter a computer name. I am able to gather this image using WindowsPE and ImageX, I can then deploy this image on a bare metal computer using ImageX. However, when I try to deploy this image using WDS it appears to ignore my answer file and start the OOBE.


Is there a way I can tell WDS to NOT give the computer a name and join the domain and simply push the image out onto the computers. Essentially just like Symantec Ghost would do it? :)


Your site and opinions on it have been great help so far. Would be great if you can help me with this final stage.sysprep21.xml
