Anyone working with images, WAIK, sysprep and deploying systems in Windows 8 yet?  We are already beginning to build images for a small beta in January and I was wondering what roadblocks people have run into.

We use KACE's K2000 system deployment appliance. They just released an updated version of code that allows for Windows 8 deployments. Not sure how familiar you are with it, but it is a great tool and saves a ton of time on deploying systems.

In the KACE 2000, looking in the peinst folder and driver feed I do not believe "windows 8" has been added to that, so I do not think the driver feed will work in a captured install or using the native feed in scripted in stall.  So you may or may not run into an issue there.
