how can I deploy Windows Vista SP1 using SCCM 2007 SP1



Recommended Posts

Before starting this part, you should have completed all the steps in Part 1 and Part 2.

 

 

Add New operating system image

 

Locate your Windows Vista Service Pack 1 DVD and copy the contents of it to a folder shared that folder on the network for example

 

\\WIN-AE2V1IRN067\iso\Vista Sp1

 

In SCCM ConfigMgr, select Operating System Images from within Operating System Deployment and right click it, choose Add Operating System image.

In the Data Source page browse to the sources folder of the Windows Vista SP1 dvd you copied above and select the install.wim file

 

eg:

\\Win-ae2v1irn067\iso\Vista Sp1\sources\install.wim

 

add_vista_sp1_installwim.jpg

 

In the general screen fill in the details

 

add_vista_sp1_details.jpg

 

review the summary and click next

 

add_vista_sp1_summary.jpg

 

verify all is Green and then click close.

Create Distribution Point for the Image

 

 

Now that we have added the install.wim file to our available operating systems, we need to create a new distribution point for it so let's do that.

 

Expand the newly added Vista SP1 image you just added in Operating System Images and right click on Distribution Points, select New Distribution Points.

when the wizard appears click next

we only select the normal distribution point from the list (and not the PXE one) as this is not a boot image.

select next to continue and close when done.

Add new Operating System Install Package

 

 

Next we will make an Operating System install package, this package will contain the files necessary to support the installation of the Windows Vista SP1 install image we created above.

 

In SCCM ConfigMgr expand the Operating System Deployment node and select Operating System Install Package from the list of available options.

Instead of picking the install.wim file from the Vista source we used above, we must now point the Operating System Install Package wizard to the root of the Vista dvd which we've already copied to the network, SCCM will then import all of the setup files that are required to support the installation of Windows Vista....

 

The Operating System Installation Package must contain all the files necessary to install the desired Windows operating system on a reference computer. For example, this package might contain all of the reference files found on a Microsoft Windows XP Professional installation CD (not just the files in the i386 folder) because the installation must be run unattended. You create this package as you would any other Configuration Manager 2007 package. This package does not require a program. The task sequence will reference the source files as needed.

fill in details about the install package

 

add_os_install_package_wizard_details.jpg

 

review the summary...

 

add_os_install_package_wizard_summary.jpg

 

and click close when done, now that we've added this package, we again need to distribute it to our distribution point, however we will add it only to the normal distribution point and not the pxe one.

 

Expand the Operating System Install Package node we've just added, right click on Distribution Points and choose New Distribution Points.

Click next when the wizard appears and only select the first of the two distribution points listed, continue the wizard until it's completed (as we've done above).

Drivers

 

One of the issues you'll probably face sooner or later with deploying Vista or Server 2008 is not being able to access network or storage resources due to missing drivers within boot.wim, in order to resolve this we can add network and/or storage drivers using SCCM, but before doing so create a share on your network and copy some drivers into it, make sure that the permissions for that share allow READ/Write access.

 

Use the following permissions on the Driver Packages share

 

Everyone = Reader

SMSInstall = Owner

SYSTEM = Co-Owner

 

in addition make sure that the SYSTEM account has NTFS permissions that give it full access

 

Drivers must be added to packages and deployed to distribution points before computers can use them.

 

In SCCM ConfigMgr, right-click on Drivers in the Operating System Deployment section and choose import.

When the wizard appears paste in the path to your network share containing the drivers

 

for example: \\WIN-AE2V1IRN067\Drivers\nic

 

driver_path.jpg

 

after a while it will list the driver(s) it found at the location, click on categories to place them into a category

 

found_drivers.jpg

 

give the category a descriptive name for the type of drivers you are adding

 

category_added.jpg

 

click ok and next to continue

 

category.jpg

 

When the wizard brings you to the Add driver to package screen, just click next,

 

add_driver_to_package.jpg

 

next you have the option to add these drivers to our boot.wim files, as we are adding Network drivers then you should select the X86 and X64bit SCCM boot.wim files listed, make sure to also place a checkmark in Update distribution points when finished.

 

add_driver_to_boot_wim.jpg

 

review the summary

 

summary.jpg

 

and click next to add the drivers

 

progress.jpg

 

after a while you should see

 

import_new_driver_wizard.jpg

 

if you get errors at this point then make sure you've verified that you have both READ and WRITE permissions to the network share.

 

 

Driver Packages

 

Now we want to create a Driver Package, so expand the Driver Packages node in SCCM ConfigMgr and right-click, choose New Driver Package.

 

new_drivers_package.jpg

 

Create a network share to store the Driver Packages and in the wizard that appears fill in the details and point it to your share (keep this share separate from the drivers share)

 

eg:

\\WIN-AE2V1IRN067\driver_packages

 

new_drivers_package_wizard.jpg

 

click ok to create the package, we now have an empty driver package.

 

 

Import Drivers into Driver Package

 

Right click on our newly imported Network driver in the right pane and choose Add or Remove Drivers to Packages.

 

addorremovedrivers.jpg

 

from the screen that appears select your driver and select to update the distribution point

 

add_to_drivers_package.jpg

 

once done you should see your driver(s) listed in the drivers package (hit refresh or F5 if it doesn't appear).

 

drivers_in_package.jpg

 

Now that we have our drivers imported into our drivers package, we need to Create a distribution point, so lets right-click on Distribution points and choose new distribution points,

 

new_distr_point.jpg

 

select only the normal distribution point leaving the pxe one unchecked.

Once the copying is done click close.

 

 

 

Continue with Part 4.
