Do you want to build a solution for deploying Windows? The performance and capabilities of the solution you build will be directly related to these four factors;
- Create a model specific image, with device drivers built-in
- Manage driver injection, just in time, after Windows is installed on the hard drive, but while the PC is still booted in the WinPE environment
This page describes one possible solution for the 2nd of the two, where you can deploy the Windows image, then dynamically lookup the device details from the firmware (the BIOS or UEFI) and load matching drivers to the device, just-in-time, at deployment time. Continue reading “Driver Injection”
Can you deploy Windows to PCs with just one USB port?
FAT32 has a maximum file size of 4GB. Some Windows images are larger than 4GB and WinPE must reside on a FAT32 partition. Therefore, you will not be able to store Windows images in the WinPE partition and must store them in a separate NTFS partition, or on the network…
ISO files can be useful for a variety of reasons, for example, attaching an ISO to a virtual machine can be a quick way to add resources to a virtual machine. Windows can access an ISO file, similarly to a Zip file, and sometimes it can be useful to make a simple ISO image from a folder. Continue reading “Create an ISO from a folder”
