windows7_bloglogo The Windows Automated Installation Kit (Windows AIK) is a set of tools and documentation that support the configuration and deployment of Microsoft® Windows® operating systems.. By using Windows AIK, you can automate Windows installations, capture Windows images with ImageX, configure and modify images using Deployment Imaging Servicing and Management (DISM), create Windows PE images, and migrate user profiles and data with the User State Migration Tool (USMT).

This kit is also required to use the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT).

  • Hey where my kudos for reminding you, LOL!

  • yea, I needed a post to put above the sliverlight test post so it wasn't hanging out at the technet site.

    The Jordon Memorial WAIK post.  :?)

  • Did you notice that you can not "imagex /apply" the Windows 7 install.wim from the Windows 7 Beta DVD? I didn't have problem applying the wim image from build 6595.

    Build 7000 fails to apply the bootstrap. No "Boot" folder in C:\ drive.

  • I didnt think you could do that with the Vista install.wim either. I tried once and got a registry error when the mini setup tried to run OOBE phase.

  • It worked for 6956 build. I did it several times under winpe.
