1 Windows 7 Deployment Overview 100 Level – Windows 7 Deployment By: Ed Horley Date: March 2010 Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 3.0 Unported

2 Disclaimer! I am NOTan expert on deploying Windows 7 (I am a networking engineer for god sakes!) This is an overview of material from multiple Microsoft and other online resources The links are provided for the content – read it! We hope to have a follow up in the next two months that goes into a lot more depth 2

3 Windows 7 Deployment Key Points: –Windows Automated Installation Kit 2.0 (Windows AIK 2.0) Supports file-based disk imaging Better scaling multicast support –Windows Deployment Toolkit (Not covering) –Deployment Scenarios –Application Compatibility 3

4 Deployment Platform Components 4

5 New for Windows 7 Windows System Image Manager –included in the AIK 2.0 Windows Setup –Updated, it is now Setup.exe Sysprep –included natively, not a separate download Windows Preinstallation Environment –included in the AIK 2.0 Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM) –command-line tool - consolidates Package Manager, PEImg, and Intlcfg 5

6 New for Windows 7 ImageX –command-line tool - can mount multiple images simultaneously and do interim saves Windows Imaging –file based images allowing editing DiskPart –mount virtual hard disk (.vhd) files offline User State Migration Tool (USMT 4.0) –migrate user settings from old OS to Windows 7 - included in the AIK 6

7 Some Terminology Answer file –New xml file that scripts the setup and installation settings for Windows 7 –Either called: Unattend.xml or Autounattend.xml Image-based setup –Applying an image of an OS to a system Deployment share –A folder that contains the source files for Windows products that you install Master computer –A master image machine that is set up as needed to capture and build the master image 7

8 Some Terminology Master Image –Files and folders that were captured from a master installation, has OS, apps and anything else you want to add Master Installation –A Windows 7 install on a master computer that is used to build the master image Package –A group of files that Microsoft provides to modify Windows 7 features Windows Image file –A compressed file containing all the files and folders to make a Windows installation (file-based) -.wim file type 8

9 Deployment Options Most standard deployments or migrations will make use of AIK 2.0 The AIK 2.0 has most of the tools you need to do a variety of deployment options – download it If you are doing a large volume rollout then you should use MDT (Not going to cover that in this presentation) The User State Migration Tool is included in the AIK and allows you to migrate user settings – important if keeping user settings is a deal breaker in deploying Windows 7 9

11 Ed’s short list of what looks interesting Delivery: –Windows Deployment Services Multicast Enhancements Dynamic Driver Provisioning Migration: –User State Migration Solutions: –Application Compatibility Toolkit 11

12 Windows Deployment Services Update to Remote Installation Services (RIS) Replacement for other multicast push solutions like Ghost Uses TFTP to download network boot programs and images Uses Multicast Multiple Stream Transfer Has Dynamic Driver Provisioning 12

13 WDS - Multicast Enhancements Multiple Stream Transfer –Multiple bands to broadcast images to clients –Optimized rates per client connection Client Auto Removal –Slower clients can be dropped to unicast or entirely (only in standard multicast) Boot Image Multicast –Windows PE boot images can use multicast (clients with EFI) FastFast MediumMedium SlowSlow Attribution- Microsoft TechEd 2008/9 Win7 Deployment by James Dent

22 WDS - Dynamic Driver Provisioning Client WDS Server ImagesDrivers Driver targeting to match drivers to hardware Reduces image size and centralizes deployment driver management

23 Attribution- Microsoft TechEd 2008/9 Win7 Deployment by James Dent User State Migration Tool Hardlink Migration –Enables local file migration without copying or moving files –Processes migration jobs in third of the time or less Offline User State Capture –Capture during Windows PE phase to improve speed Volume Shadow Copy –Capture files even while they are in use Improved File Discovery –Reduces XML customization need

24 Deployment Scenarios Upgrade Computer –Upgrade from Vista SP1 to Windows 7 – only upgrade option to Windows 7 New Computer –New OS on a new computer - clean Refresh Computer –Similar to New Computer – restores old user state and file info Replace Computer –User State Migration from old OS to new Windows 7 – systems can be side by side during the process 24

25 Application Compatibility Five primary tools to deal with Application Compatibility issues –Program Compatibility Assistant –Program Compatibility Troubleshooter Wizard –Application Compatibility Toolkit (ACT) –Windows XP Mode –Application Virtualization 25
