SCCM 2012 - Boot image

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody

 

I have a problem. I am doing SCCM guide updated in this forums and I am trying to connect with a new virtual machine with PXE boot. By error, I deleted boot images in SCCM server (default images) and when I try to upload boot images directly from windows DVD I cant (I copied all data into a shared folder called sources into a subdir). My question is where SCCM save booit images physically and how can I add default boot images.

 

Thanks a lot!

Are you trying to use windows 7 boot wims. If so that will not work. It is windows 8 boot wims only. The boot wim files are located "?\Microsoft Configuration Manager\OSD\boot\" The ? is there you had told SCCM to install at.

Have you installed the "Deployment Tools", "User State Migration Tool (USMT)" and the "Windows Preinstallation Environment (Windows PE)" from the ADK available here? Once this is installed use the "Create Boot Image using MDT" option from the SCCM Management Console on the machine where you installed the ADK.

Hallo,

 

thanks for your replies. I add windows 7 boot images from \Microsoft Configuration Manager\OSD\boot\ and it works!

 

Yes I have installed all deployment tools but I did not start deployment systems yet.

 

Thanks for your help lads

If you are using CM 2012 SP1 you should not use Windows 7 boot images, what version are those? i gues 3.0?

 

Windows 8 winPE bot images are 4.0 those that you should be using.

Agreed. WinPE 4.0 allows you to use Powershell as well as a number of other helpful components. I believe it is also what you are officially supposed to be using for SP1.

For Booting an ESX 4.1 VM, the SP1 boot images won't work because Windows 8 and WinPE 4.0 don't work on that version of VMware. I'm going to see if I can use the boot wim's from my lab site that I haven't upgraded to SP1 yet in my SP1 production :)
