The Create MDT Task Sequence Wizard creates a number of packages and images. After these packages and images are created, select the distribution points from which the packages and images will be copied and available to target computers.

Note   In this sample, there is only one distribution point (WDG-MDT-01). However, most production networks have multiple distribution points. When performing this step in a production environment, select the appropriate distribution points for the network.
