USB Creation from server without access to USB ports

Recommended Posts

 I am in need of some assistance. I want to make bootable USB drives from my SD server but I cannot. My server is a virtual server and thus no physical USB ports. If I go thru the Deployment pack creation, I realize I can create a DVD but this then does not give me a bootable USB. It creates 2 ISO files and this does not work. I wish our SD server was its own server and running Windows Server 2019, but oh well. 

Does anyone have any thoughts on how to do get this done?

Hello Aaron@Shared,

What we recommend doing is to install another instance of SmartDeploy on a physical workstation. Then you can create USB media, using your Answer File, Image, and Platform Pack via network shares from your main console host. 

If you have any further questions, please submit a request at support@smartdeploy.com
