If you are like me, you already have your Vista image built and applied to your MDT installation. Now that Windows Vista SP2 has been released, you are wondering how best to deploy it. With MDT you have several ways to do it.
You could apply your image to a computer, install the service pack and recapture the image. You can do a fresh install from a Vista with SP2 media, add your apps and capture. I decided on a third way of doing it. Add the service pack to the applications. Call the executable and run the update in silent mode.
In my screenshot below, you see how I added the application as part of my MDT install.
I call the the command – Windows6.0-KB948465-X86.exe /quiet /norestart /nodialog
Add the application install as task sequence in your deployment or check it off with your litetouch install and away you go. It runs the update on the computer as it is deploying and now you have a machine, running Windows Vista SP2 right off the hop.
Eventually down the road, I plan to rebuild my image and capture it. But for now, this works fine for me.
