Operating system deployment provides the Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007 administrator with a tool for creating images that can be deployed to computers managed by Configuration Manager 2007, and to unmanaged computers using bootable media such as CD set or DVD. The image, in a Windows Imaging Format (WIM) format file, contains the desired version of a Microsoft Windows operating system and can also include any line-of-business applications that need to be installed on the computer. Operating system deployment provides the following functionality:
