today I would like to comment about a book that I have read in the last few weeks that is the “The Windows-noob OSD Guides for Configuration Manager 2012 R2, by Niall Brady”.
the 1st thing to say is the author, if you don’t know him, I suggest you access windows-noob.com. Niall has been publishing tutorials there for quite some time and it is a must-stop for those that are stating with SCCM as well as for those that has more experience.
The book is well written and clear of what you need to do to achieve the goal, if it is to integrate SCCM with MBAM, deploy a surface pro, custom windows 8.1 start menu or anything else that is related with OSD. Customising boot image, creating custom forms to be using during OSD (HTA forms), drivers, etc. those are things that you need to know to perform you job, but not every company needs everything. you may not need to create HTA forms or integrate with MBAM, but customising boot image, adding drivers, troubleshoot OSD, etc, are some of the tasks you need to do and this book provide it all.
With clear examples, step by step and of course, with all scripts available to download, this is the book you MUST have if you work with SCCM and OSD.
hope you’ll enjoy reading this as much as I enjoying reading.
Well done Niall!!
