These guys wrote a readable, useful book Mastering Windows 7 Deployment about a subject on which consolidated documentation is scarce, scattered around the internet or written badly so you still can't figure it out or is to boring you just don't read it. If I need to define the goal of this book: get people a good head start for Windows 7 deployments in a planned and organized fashion.This is not a book for the absolute newbie who doesn't know the difference between a local and a domain account. It isn't targeted at the WDS/MDT experts who've solved, fixed and worked around any and all PXE boot, network errors, cryptic WDS or MDT deployment errors & configuration challenges known to man kind. In that case this stuff is known to you (or should be). The point is those experts have already learnt a lot the hard way and they put in a considerable effort to do so. But knowledge needs to be transferred and spread around and to do that you need to cover the basics and work up from there, showing progress and results. The progress and results motivate people. In that respect this book get's the job done.In that respect, this books get's you started on that path from chapter one. This book will come into its own for any SME or enterprise departmental system administrator with who needs to be launched swiftly and on his or her way to their targets, which are smooth Windows 7 deployments. A lot of production system administrators are in the progress of looking at Windows 7 and might have a lot of experience with Windows XP and Windows 2003 but not with Windows 2008(R2) and Vista/Windows 7. If you're in that bracket you're definitely going to get a kick start with this book and it contains some neat tips and tricks to get over some initial gotchas. Don't think that this is for big enterprises only. Apart from the system center products most tools are free downloads or a part of the Windows server license you already own.For more taughts see [...]
I like the book but I hoped it was a level 300. This is a great book for beginners; if you are already familiar with MDT I would not recommend it.
This was a great book. I came in with Zero knowledge on MDT and WDS. This book walks you through the process start to finish. You will diffidently be equip with the core knowledge need to setup a basic deployment. I would defiently recommend this book to anyone starting out with windows 7 deployments
I bought it for a college class(required textbook) and it is perfect. The instructor says she didn't model the class off the book but the book follows perfectly. And it is a practical addition to my library for future reference.
