8. Select Next to proceed to the Optional Components page. For now let’s keep the defaults.


9. Let's select CD / DVD disc as the type of media we would like. SmartDeploy Enterprise supports spanned media, so really you can pick any option. It just depends on how big your image is and what media you select!


10. Select Next to proceed to the Save Options page.


12. Select Browse to select a location where you want to save the SmartDeploy ISO. If you would like to burn the .iso to media now, click the Burn now checkbox, otherwise just click Next and burn the media later.


13. Select Finish to start the media creation process.
