Windows Deployment Wizard 2.0 Released

I am happy to announce that version 2.0 of my deployment wizard is released. I also put out new directions and setup instructions. Hope this tool is as helpful to others as it has been for me. After releasing is tool at work about 3 weeks ago my call volume and email volume for windows 7 deployments and domain cleanup have drastically dropped.

Here is what the new site can do:

 

This site was created to allowing any system admin to deploy the Windows 7 image at their own speed.

This website is still a work in progress so new features will be added as I has time. New features would be released with new version numbers.

Windows Deployment Wizard 2.0 has the following features:

  1. Deploy Windows 7 to an existing SCCM Client
    1. Deploy X86 with data recovery (USMT)
    2. Deploy X64 with data recovery (USMT
    3. Deploy X84 without data recover
    4. Deploy X64 without data recovery
  2. Deploy Windows 7 to a bare Metal Machine or a machine that does NOT exist in SCCM
    1. Deploy X84 without data recovery
    2. Deploy X64 without data recovery
  3. Delete a Machine from AD and SCCM
    1. This will check AD and SCCM then let you know where it exists
    2. Once you click delete it will email you that the machine is deleted along with the Domain Cleanup exchange group of your choosing.
      1. We use this as a way to let our other security teams know that a machine has been removed and they need to cleanup assets as well.

The whole site was recoded in VB.net. The website is considered ASP.NET 2.0 with HTML 4-5 and CSS3. This gives us the ability to use tracing and email for audit trails. It also allows for more code growth in the future.

 

 

Note: I’ve also maintained version 1.0 for anybody that didn’t want all this new power Smile
