Windows Deployment service

One thing that I have been working on at work, kind of a pet project, is setting up Windows Deployment service. I am a Sr MS Support Administrator and my group has been tasked to move a number of servers to a new data center and after doing some studying for my MCITP-EA I thought that setting this service would greatly benefit us.

The basic jist of Windows Deployment Service (WDS) is that it uses DHCP to PXE boot a bare metal server so you can build the Windows OS quickly and efficiently. You can even create an unattended file so you don't even have to interact with the build.

Here are some links, that I have found during my research:

Here, Here, and Here.

These are just a few sites that found to help me out.
