Hi guys,

Long time since my previous post but I’m kinda in the middle of moving our stuff after we have sold our house, so I’ve been a little bit occupied at the moment. However there are some great things to report:

As you perhaps might know, TechEd North America has kicked off today, already with some fantastic new things and improvements to report.

One of them is regarding to Operating System Deployment with the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit.

As stated by other persons on the web busy with Operating System Deployment, Microsoft isn’t any longer showing how one can perform an Operating System Deployment with MDT, but it is exactly telling us what to do, and how it can be achieved.

Please see the following section on technet, and this link in particular: Create a Windows 8.1 Reference Image

Next thing is that deployment guru and MVP Johan Arwidmark¬†known for his website: http://deploymentresearch.com now has released a weekly update for us “deployment geeks” called: “Deployment News”, you can check in on him every week on his youtube channel

I’ve taken the liberty to embed the first two episodes of Deployment News on this blog!

Deployment News – Episode 1

Deployment News – Episode 2

That I’ll be all for know, I’m working on a post regarding OS deployments with MDT on VMware, since I’ve noticed a big difference in performance between Intel E1000 and VMXNET3 NIC’s

Cheers and see you soon!
