Using WDS, computers without an operating system installed can boot from the network, contact the WDS server, and download and install the operating system. WDS uses disk images for the installation. An image is a single file containing the contents of an operating system installation. Image files have the .wim extension. There are four types of WDS images. Image Type Description Install Image An install image is an image of the Windows operating system that is installed on computer hardware. A default install image ( Install.wim ) is included on the Windows operating system installation DVD in the \Sources folder. Install.wim includes all editions of a particular version of Windows (such as Windows Server 2012) within a single image file, including the Datacenter and Standard editions, along with the Server Core installations of each. When you add the install image in WDS, you identify the editions within the install image that are available for clients to install. For example, you can deselect the Datacenter edition or the Server Core installations to prevent those versions from being selected and installed. You can use this feature to prevent users from installing versions for which you do not have the necessary licenses. When a client computer connects to the WDS server, and if there are multiple install images available or multiple editions within a single install image made available, a menu will be displayed allowing the user to select the version and edition to install.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
