      Recently tried to do a clean install of windows 8 pro on 3Tb drive.  Installation did not install with GPT on disk.  WIll this session talk about this issue?

      This is a must - since newer hw will be UEFI based. Will this also cover necessary drive layout and partition creation?

      I would be interested in hearing about PXE boot via both network and USB network adapters using UEFI.  Booting via USB key media seems to be the only option across multiple platforms.

      Also, how to properly deploy and verify >2TB drive support with desktop systems.

      @skarai: Thanks for the interest and the question.  Yes the session will cover the drive layout and partitions.  I am not there with Alfred, but if you have additional questions not in the presentation, feel free to ask Alfred afterwards. Smiley

      @hippman:Thanks for the interest.  You will hear info about booting with USB and across the network.  However, most USB to NIC adapters are two stage drivers, and as of now I have not been able to implement one in PE successfully.  But when one of us does, you can be sure a blog post will follow on Deployment Guys blog.

      Spend too much time in deploying. I'll download and have a look at the ppt.
