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.

In This Section

  • Bootable CD-ROM
    Describes how to create a run-time image that can be used on a bootable CD-ROM.
  • CompactFlash
    Describes how to create a run-time image to be deployed onto CompactFlash.
  • CompactPCI
    Describes the requirements and procedures for adding Compact PCI support to a run-time image.
  • 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.
  • 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).
  • System Deployment Image
    Describes the System Deployment Image (SDI) feature. You can use this to create a virtual disk drive.
  • Developer Reference
    Describes the order and phases in the overall run-time image development process.
