To initiate the ZTI deployment process in Configuration Manager 2007 R3 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 the Configuration Manager console to create bootable media for storage on a UFD, CD, or DVD.

Note   The ZTI deployment process 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 Task Sequence Bootable Media,” in Configuration Manager 2007 Documentation Library, which is installed with Configuration Manager 2007 R3.
