take a look here: http://www.droppedpackets.org/osd/pe-imaging/
You've to create a boot DVD with WinPE or BartPE (or Win98 DOS), start the imaging tool (manually or automatic with script) with your image.
The image can be stored on a networkshare or, if it is not too huge, on your DVD too.
some other helpful links:
As i said earlier my DR site would not be having any kind of communication with the core server. The link forwarded by you requires the landesk console to deploy the image.
Concentrate on getting a PE bootable DVD that you have copied the ImageW.exe tool and your image onto. You would run the tool manually from within there and apply your image that way. Also look at the tools being used to extend the partiton size in your scripts so you can replicate that stage of deployment and also set the partition active.

I have a need to take the .wim file on the core server and convert it to a useable/bootable/deployable DVD.
Yes it is under the DVD size (4.2g).
is this possible to create?
the following links provide a possible solution which seems to differ from the previous poster's responses.
am i going down the wrong path?
1) take the .wim file that i've created (our image) sitting on the LANDesk core server, and convert to a DVD install.
2) the DVD needs to be able to boot, mount IDE or SATA hard drives (for HP and Dell Laptops ranging from 1-5 years old machines as of 2009), lay down the image on the drive using the image file directly from the DVD, and would be nice if the agent would self install (although not absolutely needed as i could manually do that if push comes to shove)
has anyone come across the need for this? or documented anything similar?
any help would be greatly appreciated.
