To install an image, right-click the image group and select Add Install Image After the WIM le has been selected in the same fashion as a boot image, the images list found in the WIM is displayed, as shown in Figure 16-28 After the images to import have been selected, the images are imported in the same fashion as a boot image The only difference is, because install images are much larger than boot images, the process takes signi cantly longer

Managing Images
After the images are imported, there is not much management required in WDS You might want to add updates, services packs, drivers, language packs, and so on, but that is not done within WDS If you have an image with a service pack integrated, import it in the same manner as an image without a service pack that is all outside The only item that you have to do inside WDS is if an image is updated, you have to re-import it Let s get rid of that Windows Vista-supplied bootwim content Right-click on the image under Boot Images and select Delete However, to play it safe, select Disable which puts the image into Of ine status, and it will no longer be offered to clients There are other properties If you right-click a boot image, you can see its properties but can t change anything other than its name and description everything else is informational only This is not the same for install images, which expose additional options On the General tab for an install image at the bottom, there is an option to enable an unattended installation For now, let s pretend you have not seen the unattended option Notice the Security tab which enables you to control which OSs various users can see To see an OS as an option to install, the user must have read and execute permission on the image By default, these permissions are granted to the Authenticated Users group, as shown in Figure 16-29 To restrict OS deployability, restrict the read and execute permission to the users/groups that should see the OS

into WDS; however, you can restrict who has the read and execute permissions
When you right-clicked on both the boot and install images, you saw options to Export Image and Replace Image The export option is used to create a new WIM le on the local le system from the images stored within WDS This is useful if you no longer have the original source WIM you used to import into WDS and want to update the WIM with a x or other update If you export, you are prompted for a le name, and once selected, the export is executed and a new WIM le will be created on the le system After the WIM is updated and you want to read back into WDS, you could import an image as a brand-new WIM le However, it s better to select the Replace Image option from the context menu of the image you want to replace (see Figure 16-30) Select the WIM le that contains the image you want to use to replace the current image, and your image is updated with new content
