As part of the planning process, evaluate target computer readiness for the deployment of the target operating system, device drivers, applications, and other components. Evaluate target computer readiness using automated hardware and software inventory tools, such as Configuration Manager 2012, Configuration Manager 2007 R3, System Center Essentials, Microsoft Assessment and Planning (MAP) Toolkit, or the System Center Asset Inventory Service.
Evaluate target computer readiness for deployment by:
· Verifying target computer readiness for running the MDT scripts as described in Verify Target Computer Readiness for Running MDT Scripts
· Verifying that target computers have adequate software and hardware system resources as described in Verify Adequate Target Computer Resources
· Identifying the differences in the deployment process between 32-bit and 64-bit computers as described in Identify Differences in 64-bit and 32-bit Deployments
