Microsoft IT Showcase is pleased to announce the publication of Deploying Windows 7 Using System Center Configuration Manager 2007 and OSD, which discusses how Microsoft IT wanted to increase user satisfaction and reduce overall support costs associated with deploying Windows 7 with System Center Configuration Manager and OSD.
Microsoft is the first enterprise organization to use Windows 7 on a large scale, and that includes deployments using the System Center Configuration Manager 2007 Operating System Deployment (OSD) feature. OSD provides administrators with a tool to create images that can be deployed to managed and unmanaged computers. The OSD user interface, and features such as driver management and the User State Migration Tool (USMT), have been significantly enhanced. Join subject matter experts from Microsoft IT as they share best practices. These include complex scenarios such as using OSD with Network Access Protection (NAP).
