SmartDeploySupport posted a topic in SmartDeploy EnterpriseIn addition to a number of fixes and performance improvements, SmartDeploy Enterprise v1.1.4000 and later supports UEFI enabled devices, such as the Microsoft Surface Pro 3. If you’re upgrading from a previous version of SmartDeploy, you may notice a few changes. We’ve prepared this blog post to help you understand what has changed in order to make your upgrade process as smooth as possible. Simple SmartDeploy upgrade Simply download and run the installer. That’s it! Your previous SmartDeploy license key automatically carries forward into the new version. If you need to install SmartDeploy on a different computer and do not have your license key on file, email email@example.com. Track your SmartDeploy license utilization SmartDeploy, like most enterprise software offerings, is licensed on a per-machine basis. You need a license for the total number of computers that you deploy with the software. You can login and see what devices that you’ve deployed through the SmartDeploy Licensing Portal. UEFI support requires Windows PE x64 There is a new dropdown available in Media Wizard to create x86 or x64 boot or deployment media. Support for UEFI requires an x64 WinPE environment, and this is now the default option in SmartDeploy. Optionally, you can still select an x86 environment to deploy x86 or x64 Windows operating systems to legacy devices. UEFI requires FAT32 media formatting UEFI is an industry standard replacement for legacy BIOS. All UEFI-enabled USB media must be formatted with a FAT32 file system. SmartDeploy has always used NTFS formatting for boot media but in order to support UEFI devices, we had to make this change. Existing customers that have WIMs or PPKs larger than 4GB should be aware of this change. As you may already realize, the FAT32 standard does not support single files larger than 4GB. If you select offline deployment media, SmartDeploy will automatically split WIMs that exceed the 4GB size limitation when you run the Media Wizard. However, if you have a PPK larger than 4GB, you will need to use individual PPKs. SmartDeploy can still process a Default.ppk file that is less than 4GB, but you no longer need to combine PPK files. Simply download each PPK and place them in the same directory. When you run the Media Wizard, browse to that directory and SmartDeploy will take care of the rest. Please note, if you’re currently using network (PXE) boot to distribute your boot image over WDS, or if you’re using USB boot media to point to an image that is stored on a mapped network drive, you don’t need to worry about 4GB FAT32 file size limitations. Your WIM files and Platform Packs will continue to work exactly as they did before. Download the latest Platform Packs We have updated nearly every PPK in the library to support the newer versions of our product as well as new drivers from the manufacturers. Please check the version of the PPK that you have against the latest version on the website. If there is a newer version available, it is recommended that you use that version. After you’ve updated you PPK library, simply re-run the Media Wizard before your next deployment.
fllorente posted a topic in SmartDeploy EnterpriseHello, I've searching the forums and looks that nobody has been in this issue before, so here goes my question: I have to deploy offline 2 different images for both Windows 7 Professional and Windows 7 Enterprise, depending on the user current hardware and needs. I have 64GB Flash Drives, so I have enough space to put both images on them. I know that the local onsite technician can browse and manually select the image to be deployed, but we have some small sites where we don't have always a local technician, so sometimes the deployment task will have to be done by the office manager or someone else who may be just an end user. When I have multiple selections for joining a domain, I can define in the SmartDeploy.xml file a drop-down menu using the <domain_options> and <organizational_unit_options> tags. My question is: is there a way I can make the image file selectable by some kind of drop down or radio button menu, just like the multiple selections for the domain? Thanks in advance and best regards, -- Javier Llorente
Hello, When starting the deployment from a USB Flash drive, the current hard disk is assigned drive letter C:, but the optical CD/DVD drive gets drive letter E: instead of being assigned letter D:. The letter D: is wrongly assigned to the USB Flash Drive, what causes us a lot of problems. This problem has been verified in both SmartDeploy 1.1.3010 and 1.1.5010, on computer models HP EliteBook 2560p, HP ProBook 6550b, Lenovo ThinkCentre Edge 71, Lenovo ThinkCentre M58 & M58p, Lenovo ThinkCentre M90 & M90p and Lenovo ThinkPad T430s. The latests available Platform Packs have been used for testing. How can I make the deployment USB Flash drive to assign drive letters correctly? Thanks in advance and best regards, -- Javier Llorente
