Windows 8

Hi All,

another step-by-step, but this time is deploying Windows 8 (I'm using Enterprise x64) with SCCM 2012 SP1 Beta.

To Start, copy the Windows 8 DVD file to a place where the Server can access and share the folder. I'm using D:\Source$\Windows 8 Enterprise x64 and the share is Source$. I'm using vmware workstation 9, and i don't need to worry about drivers at this point in time :)

it is also expected that you have enabled PXE on DP and enabled support for unknown computers...
