Installation instructions

Custom Instructions for DTK_2.5-WINPE-80-README.TXT:

Download
------------

1. Click the "Download Now" link to download the file.
2. If the Export Compliance Disclaimer window appears, click the "I agree" link to accept the agreement.
3. When the File Download window appears, click "Save" to save the file to your hard drive.


Installation
--------------

The DTK components are provided in a self-extracting Zip file. The self-extracting file can be opened on any system running a Windows operating system. By default, the files are extracted to the root directory of your local hard drive, C:\. This location can be changed by giving a different path when extracting the files, but it is strongly recommended that you keep the DTK default directory structure if you plan to use the sample deployment scripts provided with the DTK.

Perform the following steps to extract the DTK components to a workstation running Windows:
1. Download the DTK file and save it anywhere on your system.
2. After the file downloads, double-click the file.
3. Click OK.
4. Click Unzip.
By default, files are unzipped to C:\. You can unzip the DTK components to your local hard drive and then copy them later to a network volume, or you can change the installation path to an available network share. For example, you can unzip the files directly to the network share (for example, Z:\) that you plan to use in the deployment process.

The DTK utilities are in Z:\Dell\Toolkit\Tools.
The DTK sample scripts are in Z:\Dell\Toolkit\template\scripts.
The DTK sample configuration files are in Z:\Dell\Toolkit\template\Configs.
The DTK User’s Guide and CLI Reference Guide are in Z:\Dell\Toolkit\Docs.

To use the Deployment Toolkit in a pre-OS environment, you need to create your own WinPE image and install DTK into it. Please refer to the User's Guide for detailed instructions in the chapter "Planning for Deployment for Microsoft® Windows® PE"
