    1. 1. Migrate XP to Windows 7 Without Loosing any User or Application Settings Rhonda Layfield Deployment Done Right
    2. 2. This Session Assumes…• MDT 2012 is installed• Deployment Share has been created• You have added Windows 7 as an OS to deploy in the Deployment Workbench
    3. 3. What We Will Cover• MDTs Hidden Secrets• Advanced Features – Not so well connected machines – Machines not connected at all• Migrate XP machine to Windows 7
    4. 4. MDT Hidden Secrets• Properties of a Deployment Share• Compare 2010 U1 to 2012
    5. 5. Hidden Secrets
    6. 6. ADVANCED MDT 2012
    7. 7. MDT Components• The MDT components are: – Operating Systems – Applications – Drivers – Packages – Task Sequences• To use some of the Advanced Features of MDT you will need to group MDT components together• The way you group MDT components is by creating a “Selection Profile”
    8. 8. MDT’s Selection Profiles• The MDT components you group will determine what you can do with the selection profile: – Group drivers and packages to inject into the MDT generated Windows Pre Installation Environments (WinPEs) – Group drivers to inject into an OS task sequence – Control which MDT components are included in “Media” – Group MDT components to replicate (and keep in sync) linked deployment shares
    9. 9. Linked Deployment Shares LDS
    10. 10. Not So Well Connected Clients Brussels OS Application MDT DS Drivers Task Sequences WAN Links Nivelles Antwerp
    11. 11. Linked Deployment Shares (LDS)• LDS allows you to copy a subset (or all if you choose) of components to replicate to another machine• Even Windows 7 can host a LDS• But, if you host the LDS on a server you can integrate WDS• To create a LDS• Begin on the target computer
    12. 12. Problems• Get out of sync• DFS-R replication – Boot.ini file• Forget a component
    13. 13. Create a LDS
    14. 14. Deploy OSs From a UFD
    15. 15. Branch Offices Brussels MDT DS Good WAN Unreliable Link WAN Link Nivelles Antwerp
    16. 16. Media Deployment MDT Deployment Image Pro No Network Connectivity Con No Version ControlBare Metal
    17. 17. Create Media
    18. 18. Prepare Media• Open an elevated command prompt – DISKPART • List disk (record the number of the external device) • Select disk N (N is the disk number • Select disk 2 • Clean • create partition primary • select partition 1 • Active • format fs=ntfs • Assign • exit • Close the command prompt
    19. 19. Preparing Media Completed• Open Windows Explorer• Turn on show hidden files• Navigate to the Media “Content” folder• Copy the entire Content folder – Boot folder – Deploy folder – EFI folder – Autorun.inf – Bootmgr – Bootmgr.efi
    20. 20. Problems With Media• Forget a component• No way to password protect the UFD• Do not format NTFS – Not bootable
    21. 21. XP MIGRATIONXP to Windows 7
    22. 22. 1 Copy WinPE MDT WinPE 2 Boot Target XP WinPE MDT 2012Deployment Server Store Users Data and Settings
    23. 23. Connect to MDT Server and Download Image W7 WinPE MDT 2012Deployment Server Restore Users Data and Settings
    24. 24. Migrate XP to Win 7
    25. 25. Get MDT Deployment Server Ready• Add an Operating System – Windows 7• Add Drivers• Add Applications• Create a Task Sequence
    26. 26. But Wait There is More…• Re-install existing applications from XP to Win 7 automatically• Extend the basic features of MDT• It would look like this…
    27. 27. XP Migration “Refresh” Scenario 1 Begin MDT Deployment 2 Get list of Applications Installed W7 User and Application Data and 3 Settings are stored on serverXP SP2/SP3 4 Format Hard drive 5 Windows 7 Installed MDT 2010 U1 Deployment Server 6 Applications are Installed User and Application Data and 7 Settings are Restored from server
    28. 28. To Set This Up• Gather application information from XP – Need the uninstall registry keys• Add applications to MDT Deployment Workbench – With the uninstall registry key• Set up MDT to extend the functionality
    29. 29. • Gather Application Information Log on as a standard user for read only mode• HKLMSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionUninstall Uninstall key name
    30. 30. Gather Application Information• .Exe’s are easy – the application name is obvious• .Msi’s are displayed as GUID’s – look for the DisplayName .MSI EXE
    31. 31. Gather Application Information Copy Key Name to Notepad
    32. 32. Gather Application Information• This is what you will get: – HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrent VersionUninstall{FC7BACF0-1FFA-4605-B3B4-A66AB382752D}• This is the piece you want: – HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrent VersionUninstall{FC7BACF0-1FFA-4605-B3B4-A66AB382752D}• If your doing a lot of applications at one time: XMLNotepad = {FC7BACF0-1FFA-4605-B3B4-A66AB382752D} NetMon 3.3 = {365C5A10-6561-454F-B975-56EA878D0A06} Office 2007 = {90120000-002A-0000-1000-0000000FF1CE}
    33. 33. Gather Application Information
    34. 34. Applications And MDT• Performed on the MDT deployment server• Within the Deployment Workbench • Add an application • Open the properties of the application • Go to the Details tab • Input the Uninstall registry key name from your Notepad file
    35. 35. Add Application data to MDT Server
    36. 36. Extend MDT Functionality• Download LTIAppDetect.vbs from – http://www.deploymentdr.com/Download.html• Copy the LTIAppDetect.vbs script to your deployment share’s Scripts folder
    37. 37. Configure MDT• Configure MDT to look for applications• Edit the properties of your deployment share – From within the Deployment Workbench • Properties of your deployment share – Rules tab [Settings] Priority=Default Properties=MyCustomProperty [Default] OSInstall=Y SkipAppsOnUpgrade=YES SkipCapture=YES SkipAdminPassword=NO SkipProductKey=YES
    38. 38. Configure MDT• Add LTIAppDetect.vbs [Settings] Priority=Default Properties=MyCustomProperty [Default] UserExit=LTIAppDetect.vbs OSInstall=Y SkipAppsOnUpgrade=YES SkipCapture=YES SkipAdminPassword=NO SkipProductKey=YES
    39. 39. MANDATORYAPPLICATIONS
    40. 40. Make Applications Mandatory• If you don’t want a person to be able to de-select an application during deployment…• Edit LTIAppDetect.vbs script• Set oApplications = oEnvironment.ListItem("Applications") To:• Set oApplications = oEnvironment.ListItem("MandatoryApplications")
    41. 41. Clean Up Active Directory Users and Computers• If you rename your newly migrated machine the old name still exists in AD• So, you might want to clean that up by deleting the old machine name
    42. 42. What We Covered• MDTs Properties of a deployment share• Advanced Features – Not so well connected machines (LDS) – Machines not connected at all (Media)• Migrate XP machine to Windows 7 – Maintaining users data and settings – Re-installing applications automatically
    43. 43. Get In Touch With Me…• Let me know how your deployments are going: – Rhonda@DeploymentDr.Com• Follow me on Twitter – DeploymentDr@Twitter.com• Available for consulting and training
