Offline Deployment Support for Blu-Ray discs?


Recommended Posts


We do not have plans to implement Blu-ray support at this time. Our focus is currently on adding additional network-based deployment features, including (most recently) push deployments, initiated from the console. This method allows you to easily redeploy systems that currently have a working OS installed - you simply install a lightweight client and specify the hostname or IP address of your SmartDeploy workstation (this can be automated or done as a part of deployment as well). The computers with the client installed will appear in the Computer Management view of the console, and you can then initiate unattended deployments on one or more computers from the console, without any action required on the computers themselves.

Additionally, we do support integration with Windows Deployment Services, which permits you to PXE boot target devices into an attended or unattended SmartDeploy PE environment, and proceed with deployment from there.

We're working on several exciting new features in network-based deployment for future release. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions or issues - you can reach us at support (at) smartdeploy.com.

It's been a few years.  Are there any plans to explore supporting Blu-Ray disks instead of breaking the installer up into 5 smaller disks? 



You should be able to theoretically make this work by manually creating a bootable iso and just burning that to your Blu-ray disk. I have done this in the past with other things and it has worked fine. I'm not sure if the process is the same or how the drive behaves with a bootable Blu-ray though so I couldn't speak on that part. Best is to just get a bootable WinPE iso and burn it to a Blu-ray to see if it works first before going down that road. that will surely tell you if bootable Blu-ray is even possible.
