To create a deployment environment we are going to use ADDS, DHCP, WDS, WSUS, MDT2012 and good old fashioned hard work! Note that a number of prerequisites need to be met to install certain services. I used 2 servers, but it is possible to do it with only one server, do note that you will need to research on how to set the WDS entries in DHCP as this will not be done automatically…


There are a number of binaries you will need to download:

MDT 2012:


Server setup:

DC00: Domain controller with DHCP scope


Once both machines have been installed and configured, setup a domain (in my case deploy.lan) and join WDS to that domain.


To get started, read these articles:
