The Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (Windows ADK) is a collection of tools that you can use to customize, assess, and deploy Windows Server operating systems to new computers and servers. The Windows ADK includes components that were previously released as part of the OEM Preinstallation Kit (OPK), such as:
- The Windows Preinstallation Environment, a minimal operating system designed to prepare a computer for installation and servicing of Windows.
- Deployment tools, which enable you to customize, manage, and deploy Windows Server images. These tools also automate Windows deployments, removing user interaction during Windows setup.
