Phase 3: Deploying the OS Image to the Destination Client Using the
Operating Systems Deployment (OSD) Task Sequence
Tip
This section assumes that the destination thin client is already associated
with (discovered by) the Configuration Manager server. For fully automated
pushes of WES7 images, only the Non-PXE method of image pushing is
supported. If the task sequence is advertised for a PXE method, then the OS
will not boot to PXE (this is because the BIOS boot order in WES7 is HDD
followed by PXE”).
IMPORTANT: Be sure the boot order in the BIOS is HDD followed by PXE
LAN.
Step 1: Add a Distribution Point to the Boot Image (x86) Package
1. In the Configuration Manager console, open the New Distribution Points Wizard (select
Site Database > Computer Management > Operating System Deployment > Boot
Images > Boot Image (x86) > Distribution Points, right-click Distribution Points,
and then select New Distribution Points), and then click Next.
2. On the Copy Package page, select both the PXE point and Non-PXE point servers
you want to designate as the distribution points, and then click Next.
3. After the wizard is completed, click Close. The two distribution points should appear
under the Distribution Point node of the Boot Image (x86) package.
Step 2: Create a Configuration Manager Client Agent Software Package
1. In the Configuration Manager console, open the Create Package from Definition
Wizard (select Site Database > Computer Management > Software Distribution >
Packages, right-click Packages, and then select New > Package from Definition),
and then click Next.
2. On the Package Definition page, do the following:
For publisher, select Microsoft.
For package distribution, select Configuration Manager Client Upgrade.
3. Click Next.
4. On the Source Files page, select the Always obtain files from source directory
option, and then click Next.
5. On the Source Directory page, do the following:
For source directory location, select the local drive on the site server.
Provide the path where the configuration manager source files are located for the
source directory (for example, C:\ Program Files\Microsoft Configuration
Manager\Client).
6. Click Next.
7. On the Summary page, click Next.
8. After the wizard is completed, click Close. The Configuration Manager Client Upgrade
package should appear under the Packages node in the Configuration Manager
console.
9. Open the New Distribution Points Wizard for the Configuration Manager Client
Upgrade package (select the Configuration Manager Client Upgrade image, right-click
Distribution Points, and then select New > Distribution Points), and then click Next.
