Exercise 1 - Install Windows 8.1 using Windows Deployment Services

Windows Deployment Services (WDS) enables you to remotely deploy Windows operating systems such as Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2 to bare metal computers. Remote deployment is done using network-based installation. This means you can perform the installation even when you are not physically present at a computer or do not have the installation files on an installation media like a DVD or a USB drive.

In this exercise, you will perform remote OS deployment on a bare-metal computer.

Exercise 2 - Prepare Windows Deployment Services

After installing Windows Deployment Services, you will now prepare the service to be ready for rolling out Windows 8.1 on a new computer.
