When deploying multiple systems, you can t afford to sit and wait on each computer as the installation proceeds Neither can you afford the time necessary to install the same applications over and over onto new systems Instead, you must find ways to automate the deployment The Windows Vista installation can be automated using a variety of different methods You can use the Windows Automated Installation Kit (WAIK), third-party tools, or Windows Deployment Services (WDS) Knowing the methods available can help you both on the job and when studying to pass an MCITP exam EXAM TIP Objectives for only the 70-622 exam are included in this chapter

One of the challenges larger organizations face is deploying operating systems to many computers If each operating system were deployed manually, it would simply take too much time Consider an installation of a Windows Vista system It could easily take several hours to manually install the operating system, download current updates, configure security, and install all the needed applications for a single computer If you need to install 100 systems, it would take 300 man-hours (3 * 100), or 375 man-days And this doesn t include troubleshooting when things go wrong

A common goal in IT is to reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) Total cost of ownership (TCO) is the total cost that it takes to deploy, manage, and maintain a system The system may cost $1000, but when you add the other costs (such as your salary), it is much more than just $1000 per box In order for your company to be able to afford the raise you deserve, they need to reduce costs elsewhere One way to reduce the TCO is by utilizing automated methods of deployment By using images, you have the capability to quickly and easily deploy a fully functional computer These are the basic steps of imaging:
Bar Code Decoder In Java
Using Barcode reader for Java Control to read, scan read, scan image in Java applications.
UCC-128 Encoder In Java
Using Barcode maker for Android Control to generate, create USS-128 image in Android applications.
Create a reference computer Capture the image Deploy the image
Make EAN128 In C#.NET
Using Barcode printer for VS .NET Control to generate, create UCC - 12 image in .NET applications.
Barcode Scanner In C#
Using Barcode Control SDK for .NET Control to generate, create, read, scan barcode image in VS .NET applications.
Take a look at Figure 2-1 for a better understanding of the overall process

Figure 2-1 Imaging from a reference computer
Reference Computer
Captured Image
New Computers
The reference computer would include the operating system, applications, and any desired settings After creating the image on your reference computer, you then capture the image The captured image could be stored on a networked computer, a CD or DVD, or even a USB flash drive Once you have the captured image, you can then deploy the same image to multiple computers While this figure does show the basic steps, each step has more detailed tasks that must be completed These tasks will be covered in more depth throughout the chapter Before we can really cover how to accomplish these tasks, you ll need to understand a little about the Windows Automated Installation Kit
2: Automating the Installation of Windows Vista
Using the Windows Automated Installation Kit (WAIK)
The Windows Automated Installation Kit (WAIK) has a wealth of information and tools used to automate deployment of Windows Vista You should be very familiar with the contents of the WAIK if you re working in a corporate environment that deploys Windows Vista Of course, if you plan on taking the 70-622 exam, you should know it too You can use the tools within the WAIK to automate deployments of Windows Vista The available methods to achieve this using the WAIK are
Windows image-based deployment using the WinPE deployment environment Over-the-network installation of images using the WinPE deployment environment Windows image-based deployment using Windows Deployment Services (WDS) Third-party image-based deployment using tools such as Norton Ghost
Deployed images require very little extra work Instead, once an image is deployed, the computer is turned on and after a little configuration you have a fully functional computer with all the applications and required settings The amount of time to deploy a fully configured computer could be as little as 30 minutes, where most of the time is spent waiting for the image to be copied Moreover, you can easily do multiple computers at the same time In other words, ten computers wouldn t take 300 minutes (10 * 30 minutes), but instead maybe as little as an hour 30 minutes of waiting and about 30 minutes to start and complete the process on each of the computers When working with the Windows Automated Installation Kit (WAIK), you should understand some basic terminology:
Technician computer This is the computer where you, as the technician, do the majority of your work In exercises in this chapter, you will install the WAIK on this computer Reference computer This is also referred to as a master computer If you want to create a custom image (sometimes called a cloned image), you would install the operating system and applications on this computer You would then configure it for your environment by, for instance, locking it down with local group policy Next, you d test it After testing, you d run sysprep to prepare the computer Last, you d capture an image of the reference computer using ImageX You can deploy this image (using ImageX) to multiple computers in your environment as desired Network Share or other storage location After an image is captured, you can store it on a network share so that is available anywhere in the network It s also possible to store the image on a CD/DVD or even a USB drive, depending on the size You can boot a bare-metal (no operating system) destination computer
