Install the MDOP’s DaRT 7.0 using the MDOP 2011 R2 Media on the MDT Server (or any server or client machine, we just need the Tools.cab file)
The installation is pretty simple and is shown in the screenshots below:
Copy the Tools.cab file from the C:\Program Files\Microsoft DART 7\v7 and paste it into the Deployment Share\Tools\x64 directory.
Copy the x86 version of the Tools.cab file into the Deployment Share\Tools\x86 directory if you plan to deploy DART for 32 Bit machines as well.
Once you have copied the Tools.cab in the Deployment Share\Tools\x64 directory, refresh the MDT console.
Go to the Properties of the MDT Deployment Share and select the Windows PE Tab. Select the x64 Platform and click on the Features Tab below it.
Select Microsoft Diagnostics and Recovery Toolkit (DaRT), this option will be only available if you have the DaRT’s tools.cab file in the Deployment Share\Tools\x64 directory.
Once we have selected the DaRT option, update the Deployment Share to regenerate the Boot Images with the DaRT tool.
Since we updated the Boot Images, replace the Boot Images on the WDS server with the new images generated within the MDT Deployment Share.
As you can see, we now get the “Run DaRT tools” option in the Welcome Wizard. To verify the functionality, we will use the Explore feature to navigate to our WinPE drive (X:)
In the next part of the series, we will cover the deployment of Windows 8 Developer Edition using MDT 2012 Beta 2.
Very detailed and covered all the part need for implementation.
