Video Walkthrough Updates

I know that many people used the Walkthrough videos that I created around Lite Touch deployment with MDT and Zero Touch deployment with Configuration Manager – as I got so many great emails about them. Over the past few months I have been updating the videos that I originally released as well as adding more subjects to the list – so I am pleased to announce that the new videos are starting to appear on TechNet Edge. In all there will be seven videos walkthroughs available in four categories (they will all be released over the next couple of weeks):



  • Deploying 2007 Office System (I'm working on the Office 2010 video)



  • Windows 7 Zero Touch Image Deployment With Configuration Manager and MDT 2010

The first three videos that are available can be accessed through the links above and I will update the blog as the other videos come on-line.

I was often asked if I could provide the videos as downloads – well, now you can download the video file (instead of streaming it) directly from the TechNet Edge web page for each video – look for the “Downloads” section at the bottom of the page to download the .WMV file

    @Mark – Can you explain more by what you mean by "deep dives"?  Is there some content that we are missing?

    I've been one of many people screaming at you to make more videos and to answer some questions about information in your videos.  These videos make my life a little easier when I perform a DDPS, or any other service project related to SCCM OSD.  This post made my Monday.

    Many Thanks

    Thanks Richard.  This kind of thing really helps with the imaging and deployment learning curve.  Great stuff.

    Not to rush you at all but highly interested in the last one, Win 7 ZTI with Config Mgr and MDT.  Any idea on your planned release schedule for that one?

  10. Richard says:

    Thanks for the feedback guys – If you deliver DDPS – then download v4.0 from the DDPS partner site – all of the videos listed are provided as part of this package.

    All videos are with the TechNet Edge team and I am tied to their test and release schedule – I am hoping that the remaining videos will all be uploaded by the end of next week (Friday 15th)

    Many thanks for the videos.  Would love deep-dives into common scenarios. More please!
