Dans le user group, nous avons identifié que le fait de devoir déployer avec winPE 2.1, au lieu de 3.1, n'était pas très optimum. Il faut ainsi intégrer les pilotes "Vista" pour le Preboot, et Win7 pour l'OS déployé. Ceci faisait un double travail pour les pilotes critiques...

Le SP2 de DS7.1 en beta version, semble intégrer désormais WinPE 3.1. Ceci est la bonne nouvelle, sous réserver d'une confirmation dans la version finale.

La mauvaise: Aucune "annonce" concernant un éventuel SP6 avec WinPE 3.1, pour une intégration native dans DS 6.9...

A suivre donc.

DS 6.9 SP6 will have WinPE 4.0 integrated, along with UEFI support.  It is almost complete, but has not gone through Q/A, so no, it's not quite ready for release.  DS 7.5 will also have WinPE 4.0 and UEFI support when it releases with the rest of ITMS.

Thank you Thomas. That's really great news. I was extremely concerned about potentially having to abandon DS 6.9 before long due to NDIS 6.1 only driver support!

DS 6.9 SP6 is quickly approaching as most of the Q/A is now done.  DS 7.5 is slated for October I believe, but I don't know if it's on track or not.  I don't have dates for either, but I "think" or would "guess" that you'll see the 6.9 SP sooner than 7.5 unless a ship stopper comes up.  Holding my word on this though will get you nowhere - make no mistakes.  This is no promise, only a "hint".

For those stay having a Windows 2003 server for their DS 6.9, it's time to migrate another OS !!

Why: Well, if you read the ADK 8.0 requirement

http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=30652

Supported Operating System

Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, Windows Server 2012, Windows Vista

To install the Windows ADK, your computer must be running one of the following operating systems:

• Windows® 8
• Windows® 7
• Windows Server® 2012
• Windows Server® 2008 R2
• Windows Vista®
• Windows Server® 2008

    If you read the SP6 requirement... huu, well, not found any SP6 requirements. neither release notes or KB, found only for SP5

    http://www.symantec.com/docs/HOWTO48932

    So after join> only Windows 2008 will be possible.

    Be care also to pre-install .Net4, else will fail:
    see http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH212765

    Sorry...I realize this is 6 months old now, however...I've just created a new Altiris DS 6.9 server and am in need of a WinPE 3.1 for DS installer like was offered with 2.1.  Anyone know if such a thing exists?  I'd be fine with 4.0 as well...as long as it works.
