Hi @dvanlocyriel95,


The Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (Windows ADK) has the tools you need to customize Windows images for large-scale deployment. You can deploy OS unattented.


You can build your reference image using MDT. Then once the reference image is fully configured you can capture that reference image with MDT. The reference image may included windows updates, device drivers etc. or you can create task sequence for OS deployment.
