During operating system deployment, MDT requires that all operating system installation sources be contained in one operating system in the Deployment Workbench. Most Windows operating systems are stored on one disc, so there is a one-to-one correlation between the operating system source disc and the MDT operating system source. However, Windows Server 2003 R2 includes two discs. MDT requires that the contents of both these discs be included in one operating system source to work properly with MDT.
Create an operating system source that contains both discs by:
· Modifying the R2comp.inf file. Use this method, described in Deploying Windows Server 2003 R2 by Modifying the R2comp.inf File, to select the components to be automatically installed during the operating system installation.
· Running R2 component installation when the operating system starts for the first time. Use this method, described in Deploying Windows Server 2003 R2 by Running R2 Component Installation at Logon, to automate the components to be installed or to manually select the components the first time the operating system starts.
