To initiate the ZTI deployment process using Configuration Manager 2012 from bootable media, provide a method for starting the computer with Windows PE and the necessary software by creating the task sequence bootable media disk. Use the Task Sequence Media Wizard in Configuration Manager console to create bootable media for storage on a UFD, CD, or DVD.

Note   The ZTI deployment process using Configuration Manager 2012 can also be initiated by starting the target computer from Windows Deployment Services. However, for reference computers it may be easier to start the ZTI deployment process from bootable media.

For more information about how to create task sequence bootable media, see the section, “How to Create Bootable Media ,” in the Configuration Manager 2012 Documentation Library, which is installed with Configuration Manager 2012.
