If you choose to participate, the online survey will be presented to you when you leave the Technet Web site.

This topic is designed to teach you how to use the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT) 2013 database to pre-stage information on your Windows 8.1 deployment in a Microsoft SQL Server 2012 SP1 Express database, rather than include the information in a text file (Custom Settings.ini).

The MDT installation files are located by default in “C:\Program Files\Microsoft Deployment Toolkit”.

The ADK installation files are located by default in “C:\Program Files\Windows Kits\10”.

The next script (a) asks for the item name you want to remove; (b) imports the MDT module; (c) creates the PSDrive mapped to your Deployment Share; and (d) removes the selected item.

Microsoft is conducting an online survey to understand your opinion of the Technet Web site.

The second step is to create two registry keys that will contain the paths to both (MDT_Module and ADK_Module folders).

The first key that you should create is “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Deployment 4”.

The use of MDT without installing it can be achieved in three steps.

You start by creating two folders that will contain respectively, required files for MDT and required files for ADK.

See below, what these folders should contain: Note: If you already have a Deployment Share make sure you use the same version of MDT you used to create the deploy contents.

The MDT_Module folder should contain the folders below from “C:\Program Files\Microsoft Deployment Toolkit”.

In this post you will also learn how to create and update a Deployment Share for the portable MDT.
