Issue/Introduction

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 

Environment

Deployment Solution 8.6 RU1

Ghost Solution Suite 3.3 RU8

Resolution

Using the Windows 11 Pre-installation environment is not supported on the latest releases of GSS and DS at the time this article was created (10/08/21).

However, we have been seeing it work without issues on the latest versions of both. Since it is not officially supported, Technical Support will be unable to assist if it is used and has issues.

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.

Since ADK for Windows 11 is not officially supported at this time, the article should be used for informational purposes only.
