Updated: November 1, 2012
Applies To: Diagnostics and Recovery Toolset 8.0
After you have finished running the Microsoft Diagnostics and Recovery Toolset (DaRT) 8.0 Recovery Image wizard and created the recovery image, you can extract the boot.wim file from the ISO image file and deploy it as a remote partition on the network.
To deploy DaRT 8.0 as a remote partition
Extract the boot.wim file from the DaRT ISO image file.
Mount the ISO image file that you created in the Create Startup Image dialog box by using your company’s preferred method of mounting an image.
Open the ISO image file and copy the boot.wim file from the \sources folder in the mounted image to a location on your computer or on an external drive.
Note If you burned a CD or DVD of the recovery image, you can open the files on the CD or DVD and copy the boot.wim file from the \sources folder. This lets you skip the need to mount the image.
Deploy the boot.wim file to a WDS server that can be accessed from end-user computers in your enterprise.
Configure the WDS server to use the boot.wim file for DaRT by following your standard WDS deployment procedures.
