The quickest way to get a Windows Embedded Standard 2011 up and running is to use the Image Builder Wizard (IBW). There is a very good post by Robert Smith on the Windows Embedded Team blog that explains in detail how to use it. He also made a nice video about it.
The basic steps are:
- Insert the WES DVD or a bootable USB Stick with the same content into your target machine
- Follow the wizard and do your choices
- Run the setup with the settings you just selected
- And voilà you got a running WES image on the device.
This really is a piece of cake. Try it out with WES 2011 CTP2.
Creating an image never has been so easy.
