Step 17. Copy osdshell.lab.exe to osdshell.exe


Step 17


This guide assumes that you have first completed the following 16 steps in the order listed below.


Create an OSD capture CD and then captured a Vista image (wim). Next you should have imported that captured Vista image into BDD, and then updated BDD with your Windows PE and XP OS files. You should then have created a new build in BDD for the captured WIM image. You should then have created and updated the BDD Deployment point (OSD/ZTI) and then updated Windows PE to support WMI. In addition, you must have imported the captured Vista WIM file into SMS and then created an OS Deploy Program. Update the SMS distribution points and then Copy driver resources for SMS packaging. Next you need to create a package in SMS from the drivers resources, and add the driver resources to a SMS distribution point and then Update the SMS distribution point. Edit the customsettings.ini and bootstrap.ini files. Update each OSD phase with BDD ZTI scripts and files.



Locate your SMS OSD installation folder, and in there we'll find two files osdshell.exe and osdshell.lab.exe. We'll rename osdshell.exe to osdshell.original and take a copy of the osdshell.lab.exe and rename that to osdshell.exe




This osdshell.exe will give us the option of pressing F8 in the development environment to give us an extra command prompt which helps in troubleshooting.
