Creating a Windows or Linux Boot Environment

You can create a KACE Boot Environment (KBE) for Windows systems using the KACE Media Manager. For Linux systems, when you upload a Linux source media, the appliance automatically creates a Linux boot environment.

For Windows boot environments, install the Windows ADK and the KACE Media Manager on the Administrator device where you installed the appliance. The Windows ADK provides network card drivers that the KBE requires to boot target devices. Target devices must be on the same network as the appliance.

You can import a KBE from a different location, by exporting the KBE from a different appliance, and saving the exported .pkg file to the appliance restore directory. See Import appliance components.

Create a Windows boot environment

Create a Windows boot environment

You can use the KACE Media Manager to create a Windows KACE Boot Environment (KBE) or a NetBoot environment to boot devices to capture images and to deploy operating systems.

1.
Run the Media Manager from Start > All Programs > Quest > KACE Media Manager.
The General Settings page appears on the right.
3.
On the General Settings page, in the SDA Hostname field, enter the IP address of the appliance.
4.
In the SDA IP Address field, enter the IP address segments of the appliance.
5.
In the SDA Samba Share Password field, enter the password. This password must match the password that you entered in the SDA Samba Share Password field on the General Settings page.
NOTE: If you change the Samba share password on the General Settings page, all Windows boot environments are automatically updated to use the new password.
6.
In the WAIK or WADK Path field, provide the path to the applicable Windows AIK or ADK files. For example:
WinPE 10 Win10 x86 ADK C:\Program Files\Windows Kits\10
WinPE 4 Win8 x64 ADK C:\Program Files(x86)\Windows Kits\8.1

If you installed the Windows ADK somewhere else, browse to and select the correct path.

The Create KBE page appears on the right.
8.
On the Create KBE page, on the General tab, in Name, review the KBE name. This automatically-generated string identifies the KBE on the appliance. You can update the KBE name, if needed.
9.
In Architecture, select the KBE architecture you are booting in to, for example 32-bit or 64-bit.
10.
12.
Click Upload KBE.
The new KBE appears on the Boot Environments and Source Media pages.
