The third and final phase of the OEM preload process is performed in the deployment organization’s production environment. During this phase of the process, the target computer is started and the bootable media image, placed on the hard disk in the staging environment during the previous phase, starts.

To complete deployment of the target computers in the production environment

1.   Start the target computer.

Windows PE starts, and then the Windows Deployment Wizard starts.

2.   Complete the Windows Deployment Wizard using the specific configuration information for each target computer.

For more information about completing this step, see the section, Running the Deployment Wizard, in the MDT document Using the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit.

When this phase is complete, the target computer will be ready to use in the production environment.
