    BKM for Vista OS Provisioning ?


      Is there a BKM or something else for Vista OS Provisioning ?

        • 1. Re: BKM for Vista OS Provisioning ?

          I'm also looking for this. What what I've seen so far, you have to use an image deploy from a provisioning task for vista deployment since scripted install isn't supported. But how to do this? If somebody would indeed be so kind as to post us instructions regarding the whole process (image deploy, unattend xml, drivers inject, etc). Maybe an full example of a provisioning task?

            Well, although a BKM would be very nice, there's also no reason not to use a normal OSD script. You can use the standard imageX command to restore the WIM image, copy the unattend.xml and tokrepl command to change the computer name in the unattend.xml


            Be sure to let the last 3 lines in the OSD script to set the bootrecord on the disk straight, otherwise your system won't boot up.

              Hello Frank,


              Thank you for replying. I'm new to os deployment or provisioning. I can't seem to find a handy guide anywhere.

              I see this topic is posted in OS Deployment. I meant deploying vista through a provisioning template. Do you by any chance know how to and have an example provisioning template handy?


              If not, can you by any chance post a working example of one of your vista osd scripts? As I don't know how to write such a script nor for instance does tokrepl say anything to me...


              Thank you in advance,

                Hi Ronald,


                Sorry, I don't have a provisioning template at hand, but here's an example of a Vista OSD script...
