Question about KBE creation
Hi, I have a question about making KBE's. my goal is to fix/get working the scripted OS installs and post install software install tasks here at work. so far I have used the media manager to upload a win7 x64 pro install DVD, and used WAIK to create a KBE from my PC,
question is, do I need to make a new KBE for every hardware platform that I intend to install windows on? ex: a KBE for our i5 desktops, a KBE for our i3 desktops, a KBE for our i5 laptops, etc...
the media manager takes the winpe.wim file and adds the drivers found in \\ikbox\drivers\kbe_windows_x64 and all subdirectories. When we get a new model in at TMCC the first thing done is someone will try to pxe boot it. If it does not boot the machine is given to me. I go and download the nic boot files and add them to the Ikbox and then create a test boot env with the media manager and then I test to see if it boots PXE with the test env. If successful I rename the env from test to a production name and switch my default pxe boot to the new one on the k2000 and archive the old one for 30 days.
