Microsof released the Beta for MDT Service Release 1. “This’s a significant update to a well known addition to System Center Configuration Manager primarily for OS deployment, but MDT is much more than just a small add on. As organizations make the move to Windows 7, and Office 2010 need for tools to help deploy Windows and Office quickly—and do it right the first time is a major priority. MDT 2010 Update 1 Beta provides following benefits: · Save time and money deploying Office 2010: Customers can now use MDT 2010’s comprehensive tools and guidance to efficiently manage large-scale deployments of Microsoft Office 2010 · Respond more effectively to user needs: MDT 2010 Update 1 includes a “User-Driven Installation” (UDI) deployment method that leverages Configuration Manager. An easy-to-use UDI Wizard allows users to initiate and customize an OS deployment on their PC that’s tailored to their individual needs · More reliable driver installation: MDT 2010 Update 1 boosts the reliability of the driver installation process by detecting each driver’s true supported platforms,” announced Microsoft.
