Tools to plan and deploy Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2


About This Video
I sat down with Mary Anne Blake, Baldwin Ng, and Melissa Stowe to help you learn how the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2010 (MDT), Microsoft Assessment and Planning Toolkit 4.0 (MAP), and Infrastructure Planning and Design guides (IPD), can help you deploy Windows 7 or Server 2008 R2.  With so many tools, which one should you use when?  What are some limitations of each tool? 

Here's how the interview breaks down:

  • How IPD guides will help with Win7 / R2 migration
  • Where IPD guides won’t help
  • [3:37] What the MAP toolkit can do to help with your migration
  • [7:48] Requirements to install MAP
  • [10:29]  How the MDT will help with your deployment of Win7 R2 and how the MDT works
  • [14:53] When you might run into limitations with the MDT
  • When you should use the SCCM integration option versus the standalone MDT.
  • [16:08] How many machines to have minimum return of investment to use the MDT? 
  • [17:00] One Tip/Trick for each of the IPD, MAP, and MDT
