1. How big is the image?
2. How much ram is in the machine?
3. What is the speed of the NIC card?
A standard windows only image with updates should take about 10 minutes or less to deploy through LANDesk.
The image is 186 MB (the size of peboot.img).
The memory is 2.0 GB, shows 1.96 GB in Windows.
The NIC speed is at least 100 MB, one of them is 1 GB.
Sorry I think I am not clear of the question. I do not mean the time taken by the process of deploying the image to the hard drive. It happened during the PXE loads the WinPE image into the memory of the target device.
That document is fantastic. After replaced the startrom.0 file from Windows 2003 SP2, the physical machine works just same with VMware machine, very quickly.
