AIK For Installing Microsoft Deployment Toolkit

Microsoft Deployment Toolkit Requesting AIK: MDT 2010 provides a common console with the comprehensive tools and guidance needed to efficiently manage deployment of Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2010 is the recommended process and toolset to automate desktop and server deployment.

Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2010 provides detailed guidance and job aids for every organizational role involved with large-scale deployment projects.

New features in MDT include Office 2010 support, the ability for users to initiate and customize their own deployments using Configuration Manager, key enhancements in Windows 7 driver support, and much more.

When you install MDT and try open the workbench, it will prompt that you need to install AIK. Now, from where one can download AIK.

Its about 1.8 GB of file. And it will take time for the download to complete. Make sure it goes properly. And then, burn this file to the DVD Using ISO burner or mount the iso files as virtual drive and use it. I used 'Power ISO' to mount the .iso to the Vm and it worked perfect.
