Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2012 Beta now available

Microsoft has made available for testing the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT) 2012 Beta and it can be downloaded from Microsoft Connect. MDT 2012 Beta 1 rides the next wave of System Center releases with support for System Center Configuration Manager 2012.

For Lite Touch installations, MDT 2012 improves the overall client-side user experience, while also providing behind-the-scenes enhancements for partitioning, UEFI, and user state migration. These features, combined with many small enhancements, bug fixes, and a smooth and simple upgrade process, make MDT 2012 Beta 1 more reliable and flexible than ever.

Key benefits includes:
– Fully leverages the capabilities provided by System Center Configuration Manager 2012 for OS deployment.
– Improved Lite Touch user experience and functionality.
– A smooth and simple upgrade process for all existing MDT users.

MDT 2012 Beta 1 runs through August 2011.
