Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2012   1 comment

Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT) 2012 Beta 1 rides the next wave of System Center releases with support for System Center Configuration Manager 2012. For Lite Touch installations, MDT 2012 improves the overall client-side user experience, while also providing behind-the-scenes enhancements for partitioning, UEFI, and user state migration. These features, combined with many small enhancements, bug fixes, and a smooth and simple upgrade process, make MDT 2012 Beta 1 more reliable and flexible than ever.

MDT 2012 Beta 1 provides new capabilities, such as:

· Support for Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2012 Beta 2, including the new application model and user device affinity (UDA).

· Improved Lite Touch partitioning, supporting the preferred partition layouts described in the Windows Automated Installation Kit.

· Support in Lite Touch for deploying 64-bit Windows® to computers that support Unified Extended Firmware Interface (UEFI) (without requiring compatibility support for legacy BIOS).

· New Lite Touch “Deploy to VHD” task sequence templates that support deploying a Windows 7 or Windows Server® 2008 R2 image into a virtual hard disk (VHD) file that can then be used for booting the OS (“boot from VHD”).

· Added support for deploying Windows ThinPC and Windows POSReady 7.

· Improved Lite Touch wizard look and feel.

· Continued support for System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP2 and all operating systems supported by MDT 2010.

· Many bug fixes and other small improvements.

This release supports the deployment of the Windows 7, Windows Vista®, Windows XP, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2008, and Windows Server 2003 operating systems. See the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit Documentation Library, which is included with MDT 2012 Beta 1, for the complete documentation for this release.
