7,691 views

Published on

Deploying Windows 8.1 is based on tools that are around ever since Vista, that have been improved for Windows 7 and have gone even better for Windows 8 and now 8.1. The toolkit formerly know as WAIK: the ADK, which stands for Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit is just one of many. DISM, WDS, Setup Commander, ImageX, MDT, WinPE, Sysprep, Update Commander and CM2012 ... You can’t spell Deployment without them
