MDT 2012 Beta 2, including the new version of User Driven Installation(UDI), is now available for download. To participate, register for MDT 2012 Beta 2 at Microsoft Connect.
MDT released 2012 Beta 1 sometime back which included support for System Center Configuration Manger 2012 as well as improved Lite Touch user experience, and behind-the-scenes enhancements for partitioning, UEFI, and user state migration. There have been a number of improvements made in these areas for Beta 2 as well as providing DaRT support and integrating Security Compliance Manager (SCM) for applying GPO packs into the MDT task sequence.
MDT has not released a new version of User Driven Installation (UDI) since MDT 2010 Update 1, but that is changing with this Beta 2 release. Many of UDI’s components have been completely rewritten and we think that this new version will be a game changer for user driven deployments. I will explore some of the highlights in this blog post, but look for future posts to delve in depth into the new features and functionality made available with MDT 2012 UDI.
