Deploy the Captured Image to the New Target Computer with the User State Migration Data from the Existing Computer Using Configuration Manager 2007 R3
Start the target computer with the ZTI bootable media created earlier in the process or from Windows Deployment Services. The ZTI bootable media starts Windows PE on the target computer and initiates the ZTI. At the end of the deployment process, the captured image of the reference computer is deployed on the target computer, and the user state migration data is restored from the Configuration Manager 2007 R3 state migration point.
To complete the Deployment Wizard in the Replace Computer deployment scenario for deploying the captured image
1. Start the reference computer with the ZTI bootable media created earlier in the process or from Windows Deployment Services.
Windows PE starts, and then the Deployment Wizard starts.
2. Complete the Task Sequence Wizard, ensuring that you follow the configuration settings for the wizard pages listed in Table 130 and select values on the other wizard pages for your organization’s requirements.
Note This wizard will not appear if you configure ZTI to perform a PXE boot and have configured a mandatory advertisement or if only one task sequence is advertised to the target computer.
