DaRT: configuration and integration with MDT

Presentation

DaRT (Diagnostics and Recovery Toolset) is a component of the Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack (MDOP) that is available to customers who subscribe to Software Assurance (SA).

DaRT allows you to create a bootable environment (WinPE) that integrates Windows diagnostic and troubleshooting tools like:

  • Registry Editor
  • File Explorer
  • Disk scan
  • Change local account password
  • Antivirus scan
  • Uninstalling updates

It also allows you to take control of the WinPE and therefore integrated into the MDT boot environment, it is possible to take control of the computer being deployed.

Prerequisites

To create the bootable environment (WinPE), it is necessary to have:

  • ADK with the WinPE environment
  • ISO Windows corresponding to ADK version

The viewer (software that allows you to take the hand) does not require special prerequisites.
