Learn more about MDT 2010 Update 1!

A new update for the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit is currently under development.  This new version will provide new capabilities such as:

  • Support for System Center Configuration Manager R3’s OEM pre-staged media feature.
  • Support for Microsoft Office 2010.
  • A new “User-Driven Installation” (UDI) deployment method (formerly known as ‘Modena’) for System Center Configuration Manager, enabling end users to initiate an OS deployment through an easy-to-use wizard.
  • Improvements to the Deployment Workbench driver import process, detecting each driver’s true supported platforms.
  • Many bug fixes and other small improvements.

Want to know more about these new capabilities?  You can find out more at next week’s MMS 2010 conference sessions:
