Ramblings from another nerd on the grid
The Windows® Automated Installation Kit (AIK) for Windows® 7 helps you to install, customize, and deploy the Microsoft Windows® 7 and Windows Server® 2008 R2 family of operating systems.
The WAIK was re-published to the download center at http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=696dd665-9f76-4177-a811-39c26d3b3b34. Looks like the only thing that was added were some languages to Windows PE.
[UPDATE for 11/2/2010] Please disregard this blog post. The product group has now clarified nothing changed in the .ISO and they only changed the version number on the manifest for the download center. I am not happy about that. Sorry for the false alarm. I received some bad information. Next time I’ll double check first.
Thanks for noting this Keith. I saw that come out last week, but I was unable to figure out what was different. Mystery solved!
Welcome. I also mentioned to the team it would be beneficial to us if they would provide a change log or something with that type of information.
when I download the ISO (DE, EN) it has the same date and file hash like the old version from 2009. I can't see any difference.
The product has now stated the only thing that changed is the version number of the download center manifest. Not happy about it.
ok, thanks for the answer.
