To do this, MDT uses a series of steps in a task sequence that perform the necessary operations to facilitate installation. Networking between the MDT/WDS server and the target clients must be clear and working.When you talk about deploying operating system using MDT, there are two types of deployment – Lite-Touch Deployment and Zero-Touch Deployment.The difference between the two is a Lite-Touch Installation requires limited interaction at the beginning of installation whereas a Zero-Touch Installation is fully automated and will not require user interaction.This latest update brings some nice improvements: As in the previous set of posts, using the final and latest version of MDT 2010, we will use the Lite Touch Installation (LTI) for the deployment of Windows 7. Accept the name of the “Share Name” and click on “Next”. In the next page we can add a short description for the distribution share. In large environment this is normally not recommended since not all users in charge of the deployment should be local administrators of the operating systems. This option will be set in the task sequence of each operating system deployment. For the Zero Touch Installation of Windows 7 we can use Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2010 with System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R2 SP2.
