Create Distribution Point for the Image

 

Now that we have added the install.wim file to our available operating systems, we need to create a new distribution point for it so let's do that.

 

Expand the newly added Server 2008 image you just added in Operating System Images and right click on Distribution Points, select New Distribution Points.

Add new Operating System Install Package

 

 

Next we will make an Operating System install package, this package will contain the files necessary to support the installation of the Windows Server 2008 install image we created above.

 

In SCCM ConfigMgr expand the Operating System Deployment node and select Operating System Install Package from the list of available options., right click and choose Add Operating System Install Package

now that we've added this package, we again need to distribute it to our distribution point, however we will add it only to the normal distribution point and not the pxe one.

 

Expand the Operating System Install Package node we've just added, right click on Distribution Points and choose New Distribution Points.
