MDT Wizard: Use an external Customsettings.ini


Some month ago, I shared a tool, link Here, that allows you to generate a Customsettings.ini file in order to use it like a profile. This way you can create multiple INI files.
In this post I will show you a wizard that I have created to apply a profile you have created and use it during your deployment.

MDT module 8443 for MDT Light version


In this post, you can find the MDT module from the new 8443 version in order to use with the MDT Light version.


What is a MDT module ?

Few months ago, I shared a way to use MDT without the MDT and ADK installed.
Using this method you can manage a Deployment Share with PowerShell. 
To do that you just have to load a module and create some registry keys. 
This module is a "light" version of the MDT installation files.
See here how to use this method.


What is MDT Light version ?

Three months ago I shared a tool, called MDT Light version, that allows you to manage a Deployment Share using the MDT portable method, above.
This tool allows you, with a GUI, to do different kind of tasks as import application, OS, update deployment share ... without MDT & ADK installed.
See here, how to use this tool.
See here, when to use this tool.


Why a new module ?

Two months ago Microsoft provided a new version of Microsoft Deployment Toolkit.
After different versions, 2010, 2012, 2013 Update 1, 2013 Update 2, the new version is now called Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 8443.

See here the post from Aaron Czechowski about the new version.
