Supporting the Operating System and Application Installation for Windows 8.1

Answers

This section contains the solutions to the thought experiments and answers to the objective review questions in this chapter.

Objective 1.1: Thought experiment

  1. Native VHD.
  2. Windows ADK. You can install this on another Windows 7 or Windows 8-based technician computer and use it to create the Windows PE disk.
  3. DISM. You will use the Deployment Image Service and Management (DISM) tool to apply an existing Windows 8 image—in this case, the one you created.
  4. 30 GB.

Objective 1.1: Review

  1. Correct answers: A, C

    1. Correct: You must use a Windows 8-based computer, and you need the Windows 8-based installation files.
    2. Incorrect: The drive must be 32 GB or larger, not 64 GB.
    3. Correct: TPM protects a specific computer from unauthorized access, and Windows To Go is used on more than one.
    4. Incorrect: Resetting or refreshing isn’t supported. Problematic drives should be reimaged.
    5. Incorrect: Windows To Go isn’t supported on Windows RT or Mac computers.
  2. Correct answer: A

    1. Correct: Because hibernation is disabled by default, leaving Not Configured or changing the policy to Disabled is correct.
    2. Incorrect: If you enable this policy, hibernation becomes enabled.
    3. Incorrect: Sleep and hibernate are different. Thus, the Group Policy for sleep isn’t the proper policy to configure.
    4. Incorrect: Sleep and hibernate are different. Thus, the Group Policy for sleep isn’t the proper policy to configure.
  3. Correct answer: D

    1. Incorrect: Boot.ini is no longer used.
    2. Incorrect: BCDedit and BCDboot are command-line utilities used to configure and control the process.
    3. Incorrect: BCDedit and BCDboot are command-line utilities used to configure and control the process.
    4. Correct: Startup parameters are stored in the BCD Store.
  4. Correct answers: B, D

    1. Incorrect: /import is used to restore a store, using what you’ve obtained before using the /export parameter.
    2. Correct: Use /create store to create a new empty startup configuration store.
    3. Incorrect: /boot sequence is used to configure a one-time startup sequence for the boot manager.
    4. Correct: /default defines the default startup entry.
    5. Incorrect: /displayorder sets the startup order in a multiboot system.
    6. Incorrect: /new isn’t a valid parameter.
  5. Correct answer: C

    1. Incorrect: Although you could likely start to the Windows 7 DVD and begin an installation, you couldn’t create a second partition or shrink the existing one while performing that installation.
    2. Incorrect: Before you can create a new volume from unallocated space, you must first make that space available by shrinking the existing partition.
    3. Correct: You must first open Disk Management and shrink the existing partition.
    4. Incorrect: Multibooting with an operating system older than Windows 7 required a specific order, but that is not a requirement now. Thus, there is no need to format the drive first.
  6. Correct answer: B

    1. Incorrect: Thin images include little or no customization, and most of the device drivers, applications, and updates are installed by using another method on each client computer.
    2. Correct: Thick images are loaded with applications, drivers, and customizations and require a lot of planning, lots of bandwidth for rollout, and much more time to create and manage.
    3. Incorrect: Hybrid images are like thin images, but with a few more customizations. Hybrid images aren’t thick images.
    4. Incorrect: A custom image might include only one device driver and one background image.

  1. Correct answers: A, D

    1. Correct: A shim can be used as a short-term solution for application incompatibility.
    2. Incorrect: You create a runtime-analysis package to test compatibility, not to fix compatibility problems.
    3. Incorrect: You can use Program Compatibility Mode to manage compatibility issues by letting the applications run in an older operating system space, but you can’t configure it to resolve compatibility issues in newer ones.

    3. Incorrect: If the computer’s architecture is 32 bit, you wouldn’t see the first two entries at all.
    4. Incorrect: If the computer is running Windows 8.1 (not the Pro or Enterprise edition), you wouldn’t see the first two entries at all.
  5. Correct answer: D

    1. Incorrect: These two are required but are listed out of order.
    2. Incorrect: The required technology is RemoteApp, not App-V.
