User Driven Deployment Wizard

Let’s not take a look at what happens with a typical UDI deployment scenario. Those with experience with LTI would notice the similarity in structure with the LTI Deployment Wizard.

 

1. Boot up and password. After booting from the UDI Media, the user is presented with a password prompt to be able to access the media contents.

2. Welcome screen. Then the user will be presented with a welcome screen. As we shall see later, the text on this welcome screen is customizable using the UDI Wizard designer.

3. Computer name and domain/workgroup information. The user will now be asked for computer name and domain/workgroup membership and credentials if necessary. Note that this is configurable and may be configured as Silent in the UDI Wizard Designer, so the user won’t have to address this.

4. Language and Time Zone. After the computer details, the user will be prompted for the Administrator password, then Language and Time Zone. The Language to install options had been preconfigured in the UDI Wizard Designer  .

5. Image and volume information. Then the user will now be presented with options preferred image and volume location to install the image. Like the previous option, this can be configured by the admin using the UDI Wizard Designer so that the non-technical user will not have to deal with what could be for them a highly technical matter.

6. Applications. Next the user will be presented with which apps will be installed. In UDI, the apps can be customized into groups so the user can choose which group of apps he or she wants to install.

7. Wizard completes and deployment begins. After all the options are put in place, UDI displays a summary screen, then SCCM will now install Windows 7 and all the apps that the user selected.

8. UDI Ends in Logoff State. After installation completes, the newly installed Windows 7 is left in the Deployment Complete dialog box, and when the user clicks Start Windows, it displays the typical Windows 7 logged off state.
