Windows Deployment

Post by wcschu » 2014/04/14 15:31:53

Hello all,
I need to set up a CentOS server for use as a Windows deployment server.
I'm not sure if this question has been answered already, as I cannot seem to find any information.

Here's the situation: There are 8 separate Windows images (.wim files) that I need to deploy. All I've been able to find are ways to launch a WindowsPE iso and run setup to a symlinked Windows iso.
Is such a thing possible with linux?

Thanks in advance!

This is more a Windows problem than a CentOS problem. Whatever installation tool you end up using does not care if the SMB/HTTP server where the images are stored is running CentOS, Windows, FreeBSD or Mac OS X.

I would advice you to select the Windows installation method first, then see if you can use CentOS for hosting the images.
