Adding an Operating System to Configuration Manager

Saving Progress...

  • Open Configuration Manager, from the Workspace, click Software Library
  • From the Navigation Pane, double click Operating Systems 
  • Right click, Operating System Images, click Add Operating System Image 
  • Type in the shared folder, the UNC path where the Install.wim files reside
  • In this case type \\ITFSCCM01\Windows 10 images\sources\install.wim, click next • Accept the default Name, Windows 10 Enterprise Evaluation
  • For Version type Windows 10, click next, click next again.
  • Click close 

Distribute the Operating System to the Distribution Point 

  • From the List View, click on the Windows 10 image 
  • From the Ribbon Click Distribute Content, 
  • From the General Screen, click next 
  • Click add Distribution Point 
  • Click the box beside ITFSCCM01 
  • Click ok, then click next, then click next again 
  • Click close 

Distribute Content vs. Update Distribution Points (clarification) 

Distribute Content is for adding the content to a distribution point the first time. After that you should use Update Distribution Points to update the content on the distribution points. Once the content has been distributed you cannot distribute content again to the same DP.

Enable Command Support  

What is Command Support? Command Support aides in troubleshooting O/S deployment issues. You can press F8 when the WinPe environment starts and open a command Prompt and view a log file.

When SCCM is installed on your server there are two boot images that are installed. The names of these two files are Boot image (x64) which is used when you deploy a 64 bit O/S and Boot image (x32) which is used when you deploy a 32 bit OS. These files should be located in this case on \\itfsccm01\SMS_ITF\OSD\Boot\x64 or the \i386 folder. Here the names of both files are boot.wim. We will now enable Command support.

From the Workspace click Software Library, from the Navigation Pane double click Operating Systems, click Boot Images 

  • Right click, Boot image (x64), click properties 
  • Click Customization, at the bottom check Enable Command Support (testing only) 
  • On the same screen, click Data Source, verify the image path, at the bottom, click

Deploy this boot image from the PXE-enabled distribution point, click apply 

A box pops up asking if you want to update the Distribution Points, click NO 

Distribute the Content 

  • Then right click on the boot image (x64) again, click Distribute Content. Click next, click add select Distribution Point, check in this case ITFSCCM01, click ok, then click next, then next again, then close 
  • Now repeat the same steps on the (x86) image.

Checking the availability of the Boot Images to the Distribution Point 

  • From the List View, Click Boot image (x64) 
  • At the bottom left of the screen click Summary 
  • Click Content Status 
  • Under Completion Statistics, there should be a green circle that indicates that the content has distributed successfully and is available. 
  • Click View Status, this screen shows that the (x64) image has been successfully distributed to the distribution point which in this case is the ITFSCCM01 server.
  • Perform the same procedure on the (x386) Boot image, verify that it has been distributed as well. 

Creating a Package –  The package will contain the CM client which will be automatically deployed to all computers that get this image.

There’s no lab for this section, but you can use the Application Deployment lab for your practice.

The SACCM01 machine can be used to download the files you need from the Internet in case you don’t find them locally on the VM.

From the Operating System ISO files. Maybe some places on the internet offer wim files that might contain malware.
