Start Course
Description

In this course, you will learn how to assess existing hardware for Windows 8.1 compatibility using the Microsoft Assessment and Planning Tool (MAP). User data is always an issue during migration; understanding how the User State Migration Tool (USMT) works will help keep your users happy with all their data and settings migrated properly. Setting up the infrastructure services Windows Deployment Service (WDS) and Microsoft Deployment Kit (MDT) is imperative to a proper deployment solution. Even if you are not going to deploy images via WDS or MDT, you will find that both are needed and provide invaluable features. Bitlocker pre-provisioning really helps to speed up your deployments, and you'll learn what other new features are available in Windows 8.1 BitLocker. All Windows OSs require activation, but there are different ways to plan and implement activation from Key Management System (KMS), to Multiple Activation Keys (MAKs), and it's all covered in this course.
