Performing manual deployments

You can deploy images manually using a USB flash device. Manual deployments are useful when the target device is not connected to the network, when deploying directly from the source media, and when deploying UEFI images.

You can download an image from the appliance to a USB device after you load the KACE Boot Environment or the NetBoot environment on to the USB device.

After the boot environment and image are on the USB device, create the appliance driver share directory structure on the USB device and add the required drivers. When the USB device configuration is complete with the boot environment, the image and the drivers, you can boot the target devices in to the boot environment.

When you boot Windows devices in to the KACE Boot Environment, the KBE Main Menu displays immediately and provides menu options to capture and deploy images.

When you boot Mac OS X devices in to the NetBoot environment, the appliance Imaging Utility displays immediately and provides menu options to capture and deploy images.
