The Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (Windows ADK) is a collection of tools that you can use to customize, assess, and deploy Windows Server 2012 R2 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 2012 R2 images. These tools also automate Windows deployments, removing user interaction during Windows setup.
Install the Windows ADK.
Windows Server language packs enable a multilingual user interface in a Windows Server 2012 environment. Adding language packs to a Windows Server 2012 image enables users to install multiple languages in the Windows Server operating system.
