Typically, target computers have high-speed, persistent connections to the deployment infrastructure. However, some target computers may connect to an intranet remotely or not at all. MDT includes the following methods for deploying operating systems and applications using LTI based on the network connectivity:
· Deployment share. This method uses a network shared folder in which all the deployment files reside. The target computer starts Windows PE, and then connects to the deployment share to perform the deployment. Select this method when the target computers have high-speed, persistent connections to the deployment infrastructure.
· Media. This method creates an image that you can use to perform deployments from removable media, such as DVDs or USB flash drives (UFDs). You use Windows PE to start the computer from the media. Select this method when the target computers may be remotely connected or may not have connectivity at all.
