Deploy a Run-Time Image (Windows Embedded Standard 2009)
When a run-time image is properly configured and built, it is ready to be deployed onto your target device. A variety of media types are supported, including CD-ROM, CompactFlash, or headless systems.
Based on the requirements of the target device, there are several deployment options to consider. Deploying on different media types can sometimes require additional components or configurations.
- Bootable CD-ROM
Describes how to create a run-time image that can be used on a bootable CD-ROM.
- Booting from USB Devices
Describes how to create a run-time image than can boot from USB flash media.
Describes how to create a run-time image to be deployed onto CompactFlash.
Describes the requirements and procedures for adding Compact PCI support to a run-time image.
- Copying the Run-Time Image to Your Target Device
Describes copying the run-time image files and folders to your target device.
- Diskless System
Provides an overview of diskless systems supported in Windows Embedded Standard.
- First Boot Agent
Describes First Boot Agent (FBA). This is used to configure a run-time image while it is being deployed onto the device.
- Headless System
Discusses systems without a keyboard, mouse, or monitor.
- Mass Deployment
Describes the cloning process and how to make a run-time image that can be deployed onto mass systems.
- Multiple-Boot System
Describes how to set up your target device for booting into different operating systems.
- Remote Boot
Describes how to remotely boot your target device with Pre-Boot Execution Environment (PXE).
- Run-Time Image Deployment Design Considerations
Describes the deployment process and considerations to make before you deploy a run-time image.
- System Deployment Image
Describes the System Deployment Image (SDI) feature. You can use this to create a virtual disk drive.
- Troubleshooting a Run-Time Image
Describes common problems with run-time images and possible solutions.
- Volatile and Nonvolatile Storage Devices
Describes the different storage devices you can use with your run-time image.
