        The Windows® Automated Installation Kit (Windows AIK) is designed to help IT professionals deploy the Windows operating system. This same toolkit is used to deploy Windows Thin PC. This document demonstrates a basic example of how to configure and deploy a Windows Thin PC image. At the end of this process, you will have a valid answer file, a bootable Windows Preinstallation Environment (Windows PE) CD, and you will have deployed your first custom Windows Thin PC image. After creating this basic answer file, you can modify it to include additional customizations. You can also automate parts of the process by scripting some of the manual steps in this scenario. For a comprehensive description of all the tools and deployment methods, see the Windows Automated Installation Kit (Windows AIK) User’s Guide (Waik.chm) or http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=121503. In this example, you build a basic answer file, and then install Windows Thin PC using that answer file. This process includes: Step 1: Building an Answer File Step 2: Building a Reference Installation Step 3: Creating Bootable Windows PE Media Step 4: Capturing the Installation onto a Network Share Step 5: Deploying from a Network Share
