Ghost Solution Suite Deployment Solution


Customer has installed the latest version of Deployment Solution or Ghost Solution Suite and would like to know if they can also use the latest release of Windows ADK 


Deployment Solution 8.6 RU1 with DS pointfix or 8.5 RU4 with DS pointfix
Link to Pointfix for 8.5 RU4
Link to Pointfix for 8.6 RU1

Ghost Solution Suite 3.3 RU9


Using the Windows 11 Pre-installation environment is supported on the latest releases of GSS and DS.

However, GSS or DS NBS server installed on Windows Server 2012 R2 with use of WinPE11 ADK version 10.1.22621.1 is not supported. See Article Id: 265750

See KB 228797 "Installing WinPE11 ADK for use in Deployment Solution 8.x"

Outside of limitations with Server 2012 R2, we have tested it works without issues on the latest versions of both.

  • The Windows 11 ADK comes in 2 parts and both will need to be downloaded and installed on the Notification Server or Ghost Solution Suite server if the use of this ADK is needed:
    Windows ADK
    WinPE add-on for the Windows ADK
  • Install to the default location
  • The Windows ADK has several options for components to install. Only select "Deployment Tools". The other components are not needed.
