Side-by-Side versus In-place

 

SCCM Operating System Deployment supports the following scenarios:

 

- New Machine (previously called New Computer)

- Wipe-and-Load (previously called Refresh)

- Side-by-side (previously called Replace)

- In-place migration

 

Side-by-side

 

You can initiate a Side-by-side migration by associating your source and destination computers and PXE booting the source,

 

In-place

 

To get an In-place migration, simply advertise your OSD Task Sequence to a computer while Windows is running, ie: do not PXE boot the computer, it will start the Task Sequence and automagically and your USMT status will be registered as In-place.

 

 

 

Custom XML Examples
