I'm fairly new to the Imaging world, and I'm going to be imaging some Dell Venue tablets that don't support PXE booting. I've been reading up on WDS and see that I could potentially create something called a discover image in order to effectively find the WDS server, but I'm wondering if I can forgo that in favor of the old-school route.
In other words, I'm wondering if I can make some kind of capture image, put it on a USB flash drive, and then transfer the captured image back via the same flash drive to finalize it on the WDS server machine, and then create whatever final image to, likewise, be put onto a flash drive. Basically, I want to know if I can create bootable media without involving my local network that will have the final image on it.
I'm sure people will tell me all about how superior PXE booting is, but the only reason I shy away from doing that is honestly that my networking skills are not the best and I'm worried that if I start messing with DHCP it's going to bring down the network. Of course I recognize that doing things by flash drives is physically slower, but I'm wondering if it's technically possible.
