Let's face it, if you are looking for a book that deals with OS deployment chances are you are at the very least already familiar with some deployment terms and processes. This book is for a manager or a person totally new to OS deployments. Don't buy this if you are looking for real in depth knowledge of the process. I bought this book on the Kindle format (very expensive for a Kindle title by the way) and the formatting is really really bad, not to mention it needed more editing.

Sorry, I really like the authors and their work in the deployment community but this book is not what I was expecting.

Well what can I say.
MDT 2010 from Microsoft is a free deployment tool and works really well. IF you got the time to drill down into it.
With this book Johan has done that for you.
Its really great , covers all aspects of deployment.
I recommend it to all that wants a quick and running solution within 1-2 days and then you can build even more from that point.

Throw your cd/dvd installation kit away and start deploying with MDT.

In a market where almost every computer book is around 900 pages (33% usable), Johan and his gang once again did what no one else is able to do today. Pack EVERYTHING you need to know about MDT and Deployments in less than 200 pages. they cut the fat and give you only what you need in detail. No BS.
I bought the book 2 months ago, changed the way I deploy and never looked back. Although it does not cover SCCM, you can get that part from DeploymentCD.com and combine the two.
Keep the great work guys, you are the Deployment powerhouse!

I built my MDT server by researching blogs, message boards, etc. Then I found this book. Wow, it could have saved me so much time! This thing is basically a step-by-step guide on how to setup MDT. You should be able to buy this and build your own deployment system without too much of a headache. Considering that Dell charges almost $40K for the Dell Kace system for deploying images to 300 machines this is a great deployment system to consider.

I have not only read this from cover to cover but I keep it as a reference book for troubleshooting or just reviewing a topic I haven't revisited in a while.

Would really like to see this book updated to the MDT 2012 software.

There is a LOT of whitespace in this book. There are pages of patches listed for HP machines. It's ok to list a few examples but at some point you're simply cutting and pasting off a website to add pages to the book.

The content that is there is good. The authors do a better job of explaining how to setup MDT than Microsoft does. After reading the book, one is left with the impression that the process is relatively clear and straightforward.

I have read this book cover to cover in the last few days, and I have gone from being a Windows 7 implentation beginner to the specialist level, if you are looking for a good guide that takes you to the next level on your Windows 7 roll outs this is it.

You can compliment your reading with KB articles from Microsoft's Technet.

My enterprise is small, only about 4,500 workstations but our IT staff has to wear many hats. We have multiple desktop vendors, about 30+ models (laptops, tablets, desktops, etc.) to image and reimage. We still use Windows XP and also are using Windows 7 and will probably have to add Windows 8 this fall. Bottom line, we don't have a lot of time to waste trying to figure things out but still we (just like everybody else in a similar situation) have a lot of issues to solve all the time.

We have to deal with the Advanced Format HD issue, specific applications/drivers for specific models and many other considerations. These guys (Johan Arwidmark and Mikael Nystrom - Sweden) have written this book which got us up and running in one day.

Yes, there are some other things you will probably run into (its the real world with millions of variables) but what some of these other negative reviewers have not told you is that these two have a TON of blogs to help with your problems. They speak at the Microsoft Management Summit, TechEd and around the world (classes). They KNOW THEIR STUFF inside and out. I've seen the Microsoft dudes sitting in the front row of some of their classes at the MMS and they TAKE NOTES from these guys on their own tools.

This book is one of the most amazing values we have ever purchased. I remember a time when setting up a bare metal box for a lite touch image and having it install the OS, drivers, applications without you having to touch it again seemed like 'pie in the sky'. We have that now thanks to this book.

What are you waiting for (except for maybe Volume 3 for SCCM)?

I anxiously waited for this book to arrive and when it did, I was looking forward to learning a lot about deployment. I will say this though, if you're looking for great detail on how to get a Microsoft Deployment solution working perfectly and all of the details necessary to do so, this is NOT the book for you. It gives some valuable insight and quick overviews of how to do so but what I found to be so frustrating was how poorly written it was. The English and grammar are poor at best and this book really could have been proof read better by someone in third grade than whoever performed that task in this case.

Enough of the slamming though...for someone who is just looking for high level views of a technology that has many intricacies and a book with some detail but not much, this is a good fit. If you want much more well written chapters and much more detail on how all of it works, I recommend the latest SYBEX book that I received a couple of weeks ago called Mastering Windows 7 Deployment!
