Windows 10 can be deployed on any PC using the traditional wipe-and-load technique. Updated versions of Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT) or the System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) can help automate this clean installation process by managing the workflow, including these steps:
- Enrollment in mobile device management
- Configure email, VPN, WSUS, and Wi-Fi
- Restore data and settings
- Install apps and certifications
- Inject drivers
- Deploy a custom OS image
- Capture data and settings from the old OS
The wipe-and-load process is necessary for migrating PCs powered by custom versions of Windows or for PCs with Windows Vista and XP. Current versions of MDT or SCCM can also manage the in-place migration process of Windows 10, doesn’t require reimaging the OS, and can preserve all apps, settings, drivers, and data automatically from the older OS. In-place migration can also configure VPN, email, and Wi-Fi profiles, enforce security policies and install certificates and language automatically.
