Deploying Windows Server 2008 Standard Edition x64 over a network

This procedure provides an example of how to create a network deployment of Windows Server 2008 Standard Edition x64.

If the target system contains a RAID controller, RAID will be configured as part of the installation.
  1. In a command prompt window, enter CD to change to the : \sgshare\sgdeploy\SGTKWinPE directory.
  2. Verify the credentials used to access the shared Toolkit folder used in Win2008_x64_SE.ini.
  3. Create the Windows installation image by running SGTKWinPE.cmd, using the Win2008_x64_SE.ini file provided by the Toolkit as shown in:
    SGTKWinPE.cmd ScenarioINIs\Network\Win2008_x64_SE.ini
    The following ISO image is created: ..\WinPE_ScenarioOutput\Network_Win2008_x64_SE\WinPE_x64.iso. The media creation software is started and creates bootable media from the image.
  4. Boot the target system from the created media, and follow the on-screen prompts to complete the deployment.
