Windows Deployment Services by itself is a fantastic and fantastically-simple solution for rapidly deploying Windows 7.  But, by itself, WDS lacks some key automations that make the migration process far simpler.  Thankfully, you can get those automations in Microsoft’s second layer of free tools:  The Microsoft Deployment Toolkit.  Layering over the top of WDS, this tool’s Task Sequences enable you to completely automate the Windows 7 migration and refresh process.

Bring your laptop to this HANDS-ON session and continue your exploration into completely automating Windows 7 deployment.  You’ll learn how MDT’s Task Sequences can automate the installation of applications right during the install.  You’ll see how updates, drivers, and even custom scripts can be easily incorporated directly into your deployment infrastructure.  All these features, layering over the top of a single Windows image that deploys everywhere?  Absolutely!  And you’ll leave with a functioning deployment SOLUTION that you can take home and immediately implement.  Don’t miss Microsoft MVP and Windows 7 deployment expert Greg Shields in this create-your-deployment-solution HANDS-ON experience.
