Windows Deployment

I began deploying Windows 10 at scale with version 1607, and over the years I’ve learned a lot and developed a good and proven system for building and deploying reference images using Task Sequences and Microsoft Deployment Toolkit.

Windows Server Deployment

I’ve deployed hundreds over servers for a variety of services over the years, below are some posts I’ve written documenting the server’s I’ve had to deploy the most both professionally and running my home lab.

Some of the posts focus on Windows Server Core (no Desktop Experience) but even if you’re deploying “full fat” Windows, these should still be useful to you.
