Deploying Windows 8 to Bare Metal Clients


The process of capturing and deploying an operating system in Microsoft System Center 2012 - Configuration Manager is fairly similar to that of Configuration Manager 2007. However, there are enhancements to operating system deployment in Configuration Manager 2012 SP1. In this lab, prepare your site to integrate with Windows Deployment Services (WDS) for use in a PXE deployment of Windows 8. Capture a Windows 8 reference system, then import that image into Configuration Manager 2012, and finally deploy it to a bare metal system. Also, configure the user device affinity relationship as part of the OSD process.
