System Center 2007 – Deploy Windows Image

First of all make sure you have your .wim File on a Network Share. Then you can start SCCM and and add your .wim file.

Make a right click on your Folder where you want to import your image and then say "Add Operating System Image". Type in the UNC path to the Image. In this example the .wim file calls "W8EE64GRP".

Now we must connect our Image with the Collection. We must now create a new Software Distribution Point. Click on your folder where you want to add the Advertise Task Sequence. Attention: Select "Advertise Task Sequence" not New – Task Sequence.

Select the before created Task Sequence and the before created Collection. Also make sure you checked "Make this task sequence availible to boot media and PXE". If you forget this your PXE Boot will not work. You can save yourself much time if you check this now. ๐Ÿ˜‰

You must create "Mandatory assigments". In my case i checked the three checkboxes all.
