Using Microsoft WDS & MDT 2013 to deploy Windows 8.1 Part 3

Windows Deployment, Part 3: Installing and Configuring WADK

We now need to install WADK (We’re concentrating on Windows 8.1 deployments (if you want to deploy Windows 7, you would need WAIK http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=5753  – WAIK cannot coexist with WADK!)

Download WADK from: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=30652 It is several GB in size (16-07-2015 – link updated to Windows 8.1 Update version of the WADK).

Get WADK for Windows 10 here

Run the adksetup installer (you’ll be given the option to download the full package for use on another computer – I recommend this).

Accept the default options.

WADK 1

WADK 2

Accept the license agreement

WADK 3

Make sure all the options are selected and select install.

WADK 4

Once the installation eventually completes, click close (take a look at the Microsoft getting started guide for further details about this product).

WADK 5

Next up, we’ll look at installing MDT 2013!
