    Hi all

    Anyone used the new BDD2007 for deploying Vista and Office 2007 ?

    At the moment i am stumped installed both BDD2007 and SP2 on my windows 2003 servers this then updates RIS to WDS and this is supposed to work in conjunction with BDD

    So far i cant seem to find any info that explains it in simple terms for setting up and installing vista and office

    Been on the MS site and looked over the documentation for it but just seem to be going round in circles

    RIS was a doddle compared to this

    Try these:

    Vista deployment step by step guide

    Desktop Deployment Centre


    Step by step guide for Windows Server 2003


    Note that I havent read them as yet, I've just been gathering resources for when I have to try this out. 8)

    think i have looked at them all and come away more confused than i was before i started :rolleyes:

    There seems to be so many contradicting ways of doing network installs now

    Bring back RIS all is forgiven :blink

    Im not really bothered about imagaing just now to many different types of pc used for that

    Just need it to work similar to RIS ie with unattended install using an answer file

    oh well back to banging my head off the desk ...lol :biggrin:biggrin



    ADD anyone else going to be working on this soon and fancies sharing there knowledge feel free

    *BUMP*

    Is it just me or is the documentation from Microsoft for this terrible ?

    Not everyone wants to image a master machine sometimes we just want to do a network install the same as you did with RIS and an answer file ....dead simple .....not 2 weeks of head scratching and still no further forward

    Has anyone else looked at installing Vista using these methods ?

    You could cheat and run WDS in legacy mode (RIS)
