Optimize the boot image updating process completely regenerate the boot

An alternative to the reimaging process is an upgrade process.

The upgrade process is non-destructive and instead of erasing the existing environment on your Surface device, it allows you to install Windows 10 while retaining your user data, applications, and settings.

Then, under the hood, based on the answers you gave the MDT wizards, MDT does all the hard work for you.

MDT isn't a new tool—it used to be called Solution Accelerator Business Desktop Deployment Tool (BDD).

SOLUTION: Use Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2010 WHAT YOU NEED: Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2010, Windows Automated Installation Kit for Windows 7 SOLUTION STEPS:f 1. While migrating one or two machines is no big deal, migrating 20 or 20,000 XP machines can be a real pain.

Migrating allows you to install Windows 7 while maintaining your users' settings and data.

I also verified that this PNP ID is in Deployment Share\Control\Isn't the point of OOB to have the drivers you need for the boxes you are deploying to? I just ran a test to verify adding a driver to a boot image.

I updated the deployment share, both with optimize and completely regenerate boot images. I proceed to reboot and run Lite Touch on the target to be met with the same error. So you're saying after updating the deployment share, I need to go into WDS, delete the old boot image, and replace it with the new one? More information about deploying Windows with MDT and WDS can be found on the Springboard Series pages on Tech Net.

Reimaging will erase and overwrite the existing environment on your Surface devices.

This process allows you to rapidly configure your Surface devices with identical environments that can be configured to precisely fit your organization’s requirements.

But at least in our rather default setup of MDT 2013, the process depends on WDS. The default Win PE boot iso included with WDS will boot most systems so you haven't need to be aware of the WDS dependency.
