MDT supports the use of the Windows ADK to deploy operating systems. The Windows ADK includes the deployment tools that were previously released as a part of the Windows OEM Preinstallation Kit and the Windows Automated Installation Kit (Windows AIK).
Windows ADK requires the Microsoft .NET Framework version 4.0. If not already installed, the Windows ADK installation installs the Microsoft .NET Framework version 4.0. For more information, see Introduction to the Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit.
