I can’t believe that’s it’s almost a year since Windows 7 was released! Many customers are already beginning deployment projects or are about to. Of course before the product released last year we at Microsoft had a goal to be running on the OS before launch and our internal Microsoft IT folks were challenged with this huge task. Well they have recently released details on how they went about it using System Centre Configuration Manager 2007 and the Operating System Deployment feature which is part of SCCM. Check out all the details below as it makes for a good reference to consider for your own deployment projects.
Deploying Windows 7 Using System Center Configuration Manager 2007 and OSD
Microsoft is the first enterprise organization to use Windows 7 on a large scale, and that includes deployments using the System Center Configuration Manager 2007 Operating System Deployment (OSD) feature. OSD provides administrators with a tool to create images that can be deployed to managed and unmanaged computers.
