Automating Windows 10 deployment using System Center Configuration Manager demonstrates how to deliver Windows 10 in an automated manner without affecting end users using System Center Configuration Manager, the industry’s most widely used solution for deploying Microsoft operating systems.
On November 2, 2015, Microsoft will start rolling out Windows 10 to its Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 customers and organizations. Windows 10 is one of the biggest and most significant updates to Windows ever. This tutorial demonstrates how to deploy Windows 10 for on-premises environments. The deployment of Windows 10 is governed by a set of Service Pack (SP) 16, with SP 15 at no cost. However, it is recommended that customers continue to install all service packs to ensure the OS stays up to date. After installing SP 15, customers have an additional six months from the release of SP 15 to upgrade to Windows 10, and many customers use the latter period to upgrade to Windows 10 (see KB 3035025 for more information).
