In the Bundle and Media Manager dashboard, select the MDT Bundle Creators and Windows Media tab and click Install MDT Bundle Creator to start the wizard.


Install Bundle Creator Wizard

Here you can see the combination of tools that will be installed and the list of operating systems that can be deployed. Choose the combination of tools that best matches your deployment needs. For each choice, the list of operating systems that can be deployed is automatically displayed.

Depending on the target you select for the installation, additional prerequisite software can be automatically downloaded and installed. You are asked to agree to the license statements regarding this software. Click Submit to take action, and select one or more targets where the Bundle Creator will be downloaded.
Important:
  • The computers on which you install the MDT Bundle creators must have direct internet access for the prerequisites to be correctly downloaded and installed through the wizard.
  • You don't need to create an MDT bundle for Windows 10/11 in-place upgrades. For more information, see Installing Windows 10 or Windows 11 using in-place upgrade.
  • If you select to install the MDT Bundle creator on a target machine that already has deprecated deployment tools, the existing tools are not replaced. To ensure that the tools you select are downloaded on the target, check it beforehand and manually remove the preexisting tools if necessary. The deprecated tool combinations are listed in Deprecated Component Combinations for MDT Bundle Creator.
