Microsoft Assessment and Planning Toolkit (MAP) 4.0 offers “User-Defined Assessment Threshold” feature that allows IT departments to customize varying degree of hardware requirements for different Windows 7 users. If you want to change the memory or disk space requirements, as long as it’s above the “Microsoft-defined” minimum, you can bump up the specs by using the “Set Assessment Properties” feature of the MAP. Also, if you don’t need to install PCs with DVD’s and instead you want to use network installation method using Windows Deployment Services (WDS), then you can simply uncheck the checkbox “If DVD-ROM not found, flag machine as Not Ready.”  This’ll prevent the MAP Toolkit from using DVD-ROM as one of the Windows 7 System Requirements (or hardware requirements).
