Windows Embedded Standard brings you a completly new setup experience with the Image Build Wizard (IBW).
IBW allows you to install the operating system directly on your target device with an easy-to-use setup wizard.
Just insert the IBW DVD - either for x86 or x64 - into your target device and boot up the setup.
A wizard will guide you trough the whole setup process. You can also create unattended DVD or select an answer file to automate the installation process.
Create configuration templates using the Image Configuration Wizard (ICE) and run the setup completely unattended.
This way you can easily deploy preconfigured configurations to new targets.
During the unattended setup IBW will scan for the target hardware and install the hardware specific drivers.
This way the configuration is not bound to one hardware.
You can choose one of the preconfigured templates to create standardized images for commonn usage areas.
e.g. Thin Clients, Industrial Automation, etc.
Select one of over 100 available feature packages to create a Windows Embedded 7 image that fits your needs.
If you forget to add a feature or you have added an uneccesary one there is no need to reinstall the image.
Just use the Deployment and Image Servicing Management tool (DISM) to update your image at runtime or offline.
IBW will check for needed dependencies after you have selected the features you need.
This will guarantee that the image will work properly.
It will also offer you optional dependencies which you can either choose or leave out.
Prepare the target disk for your image directly from IBW with an easy GUI.
