Windows Deployment Service (WDS) and Security RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    we are currently using RIS for the OS-Deployment. After starting the PXE-Boot, we have to authenticate there before we can choose the RIS-Image we want to start.


    Now we are playing a bit with the new Windows Deployment Service. It works fine so far, and we can boot a PE2.0 Image properly. But is there any possibility to force  user authentication? Unfortunately, any user can press F12 on system startup, choose the PE 2.0 image and then he can do anything he wants, delete files, format the HDD...


    OK, we could edit the PE Image so that we authenticate the user there, but it would be much better if an unauthorized user would not get the possibility to boot an image.


    Any ideas how to realize that, it worked so fine with RIS...


    Thanks a lot,
