Correct Answer: B, D

When a client computer attempts to boot from the network, limited data is transferred from the client to the server as part of the Pre-Boot Execution Environment (PXE) protocol. Windows Deployment Services can locate prestaged clients by using either a GUID (recommended) or a MAC address.

You can use Windows Deployment Services to link physical computers to computer account objects in Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS). This is called prestaging the client. Prestaged clients are also called known computers. Prestaging the client allows you to configure properties to control the installation for the client.

To prestage client computers by using the Windows interface
1. On the server running Active Directory Users and Computers, open the Active Directory Users and Computers MMC snap-in (click Start, click Run, type dsa.msc, and then click OK).

2. In the console tree, right-click the organizational unit that will contain the new client computer.

3. Click New, and then click Computer.

4. Type the client computer name, click Next, and then click This is a managed computer.

5. In the text box, type the client computer’s media access control (MAC) address preceded with twenty zeros or the globally unique identifier (GUID) in the format: {XXXXXXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXX-XXXXXXXXXXXX}.

6. Click Next, and click one of the following options to specify which server or servers will support this client computer:
– Any available remote installation server
– The following remote installation server

7. Click Next, and then click Finish.
