5 Copyright © Expert Networking Group Limited 5 Overview

6 Copyright © Expert Networking Group Limited 6 Overview Installing Windows XP There are two main methods of creating a Windows XP base image using ENGL Imaging Toolkit. Create a Windows PE ISO image with unattended install files included. Boot from ISO/DVD and Windows XP will install. Create unattended install files. Then use Windows PE to boot to access media containing unattend files. It is important that we can use a repeatable process to create the base image as that reduces the chance of image corruption

7 Copyright © Expert Networking Group Limited 7 Overview Installing Windows XP Hardware sometimes comes without a CD-ROM/DVD drive and as such it is not always possible to use a bootcd to install Windows XP onto the device in order to create a base image. It is possible to take the Windows PE files and copy them to a USB device then use that media to boot and install Windows XP Note: There is normally a suitable workstation or laptop that does have an appropriate CD-ROM/DVD drive somewhere in the organisation

8 Copyright © Expert Networking Group Limited 8 Overview Advantages Advantages to using a USB device: DVD writer not required DVD drive not required on machine where base image is being created If configuration changes are required the OS source files are accessible without recreating ISO image Note: ENGL TID https://englnet.engl.co.uk/kb/tid htm covers Updating boot media created by ENGL Imaging Toolkit 6 if or when changes are required

9 Copyright © Expert Networking Group Limited 9 Requirements

10 Copyright © Expert Networking Group Limited 10 Requirements Windows XP Unattend File Library Windows XP SP3 Media Mass Storage Drivers Microsoft.NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 (Full package) USB device Minimum 2Gb USB device

11 Copyright © Expert Networking Group Limited 11 File Library

12 Copyright © Expert Networking Group Limited 12 File Library Windows XP Media Import the appropriate Windows XP media for your environment into Build Console

13 Copyright © Expert Networking Group Limited 13 File Library Mass Storage Drivers Import the appropriate Mass Storage Drivers (MSD) for your environment into Build Console Most environments require multiple Mass Storage Drivers to be loaded to ensure all hardware types are supported with Windows XP Note: If the appropriate MSD driver for a hardware device is not built into the base image then when the image is restored you will see a Windows Stop 7B error (BSOD)

14 Copyright © Expert Networking Group Limited 14 File Library Mass Storage Drivers When adding MSD drivers to the file library ensure all appropriate versions are included, e.g. iaStor/iaAHCI (or newer) iaStor/iaAHCI (or newer) iaStor/iaAHCI (or newer) iaStor/iaAHCI (or newer) Vmscsi

15 Copyright © Expert Networking Group Limited 15 File Library Mass Storage Drivers Prior to importing the MSD it can be useful to pre- configure the folder structure within the file library.

16 Copyright © Expert Networking Group Limited 16 File Library Mass Storage Drivers When importing – start with the newest file – deselect copy source files to File Library as the files are already in the file library Then repeat until all MSD drivers have been imported.

17 Copyright © Expert Networking Group Limited 17 File Library.Net Framework Import the appropriate Microsoft.NET Framework file into the file library..NET Framework 2.0 Service Pack 1 is required for ZCM 10.x base images Microsoft.NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 is required for ZCM 11 base images

18 Copyright © Expert Networking Group Limited 18 USB Device

19 Copyright © Expert Networking Group Limited 19 USB Device Format USB device before use Minimum drive size: 500Mb as a PE boot device 2Gb as a PE boot device with unattended Windows XP install files

20 Copyright © Expert Networking Group Limited 20 Project settings

21 Copyright © Expert Networking Group Limited 21 Project Settings There are no specific configuration settings required to run an unattended installation from USB media. Ensure that the Project settings are validated and that the correct Windows Product Key is configured.

22 Copyright © Expert Networking Group Limited 22 Deployment wizard

23 Copyright © Expert Networking Group Limited 23 Deployment Wizard Base image creation Scenario 1 – USB device containing Unattended installation files Scenario 2 – USB Device connects to network share. Unattended installation runs from network

24 Copyright © Expert Networking Group Limited 24 Scenario 1

25 Copyright © Expert Networking Group Limited 25 Base image creation Scenario 1 Open Windows XP Project within Build Console From the Tools menu select Deployment Wizard then click Next From the Task Selection page, select Base image preparation then click Next From the Boot Media options page select Include unattended installation files in the ISO image and Automatically start unattended installation process, then click Next

26 Copyright © Expert Networking Group Limited 26 Base image creation Scenario 1 Select appropriate Mass storage Drivers. Note: Only tick add to unattend column for a driver if that driver is required by the hardware that is being used to create the base image. Click Next When prompted click Next to start the Deployment Wizard Once the Deployment Wizard has completed, check the Open project folder option and click Finish

27 Copyright © Expert Networking Group Limited 27 Base image creation Scenario 1 Copy contents of \WinPE\ISO\ to the root of the USB device Insert USB device into appropriate hardware and on Boot select USB device Windows PE will load then will prompt with a message: This batch file will remove all partitions from this disk and begin the Windows Unattended installation Only press Y if you are certain you wish to do this! Press Y to start the process Windows XP will now install unattended from the USB device
