Deploying Windows 8.1 with Michael Niehaus

I always enjoy the sessions with Michael Neihaus. Very lucky to get him down here in NZ. Even better in the very comfortable theatre seats at SkyCity.

WIMBoot, a hidden partition with a read only install.wim file. Used on devices with a limited disk size.Some modification need to MDT and ConfigMgr to het working. See Mr Neihaus’s blog for those details.

Not to be confused with the hidden recovery partition (WinRE).

Other notes were using MDT 2013 with ConfigMgr 2012 R2, otherwise stick with MDT 2012 Update 1.

USMT 6.3 part of the ADK for Windows 8.1. The 6.3 matches the new OS build numbering. Does not support Windows XP.
