Deploy Windows with MDT and WDS

In this tutorial, we will see how to use the couple MDT (Microsoft Deployment Toolkit) and WDS (Windows Deployment Services) to deploy Windows images.

The pair WDS and MDT to deploy images by starting with the network (PXE) with WDS and MDT allows customization and automation pictures.

The objective of the tutorial is to use WDS to offer a PXE environment and deployment of Windows and MDT images for personalization.


  • Know the deployment on Windows Server.
  • A server with the WDS role installed and configured
  • A server with MDT / ADK with the WinPE environment installed not configured (can be installed with WDS).
