Deployment Fundamentals, Vol. 6: Deploying Windows 10 Using Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (and some PowerShell)

Posted by Mikael Nystrom on January 6, 2016

Yes, the book is finally done and it is up on Amazon. The book follows all the others by being a build-while-you-read book, it includes a complete set of PowerShell scripts that will build your entire lab environment (The script has been changed, so it will be easier to use them at customer sites or other test/lab environments if needed). The focus of the book is as you could guess by the title to deploy Windows 10 using MDT and LiteTouch. The versions we did use in the book are Windows 10 1511, MDT 2013 Update 2 and the new ADK. It has been hard work, late nights, but darn I still love writing books… You can find the book on as well as other sites. oh, btw, the book also includes a complete hydration kit that uses MDT and PowerShell to build your complete lab environment.


Happy reading and deploying

Deployment Fundamentals Vol. 5: Building a Real-World Infrastructure with Windows Server 2012 R2 using MDT 2013 and a massive amount of PowerShell

Posted by Mikael Nystrom on September 29, 2015

My partner in crime, Johan Arwidmark and I wrote a book a year ago and this morning when I woke up I realized that we never did any commercials for it and that felt wrong, so here it is.

The book was written because we believe that a lot of IT Pros sometimes have the need to build a basic infrastructure, fast, using scripts. That is what the book is about. If you follow the steps in the book you will run a massive amount of PowerShell and in the end you will have a Domain Controller, Fileserver, WSUS server, Print Server, Work folder Server, Certificate Authority and some more. Everything is built using PowerShell. The scripts are written in a way that should be able to tweak, modify and steal with pride.

You can order it online from Amazon here:

If you bring it to the next conference we attend to, we will sign it for you.

Deployment Fundamentals VOL:1 – Free Online e-book!!!

Posted by Mikael Nystrom on February 7, 2012

Last night I was in a discussion with a friend and he was angry with me, he think its wrong to “give” knowledge away for free. I on the other hand have a different opinion. I started to think of how all this started many years ago, when IT was “new”, when we all where geeks, trying to figure things out and when we finally got anything to work, we used to run around and tell everyone that “–Hey, it works, it works, it works”

I believe in that, giving other people a bit more knowledge on how-to and maybe, just maybe you/he/she can go home with a smile and say “–Hey, it works.”

So, in that spirit, when Microsoft asked us if they could publish the most importent chapters of “Deployment Fundamentals Volume 1” as an e-book on, we said, –Yes, Of course.

Today, 4 chapters of the book is online and its for you to read.
