Windows Assessment Services Step-by-Step Guide

Install and configure Windows Assessment Services and the Windows ASC. Assess multiple computers and then review the results.

Prepare to Deploy and Assess a Bare Metal Computer

Prepare and add a bare metal computer to your Windows Assessment Services inventory. Create a project and job that includes the computer, and also the image and unattend answer file that are used to deploy an image to that computer before it is assessed.

Add Assets to Windows Assessment Services Inventory

Add test computers, images and unattend answer files to inventory, and add out-of-box drivers to the driver store.

Deploy Windows Using Windows Assessment Services

Assess computers that already have a supported, running operating system. Deploy a supported operating system to a computer by using Windows Assessment Services, and then assess the computer. Or, use other deployment tools or methods to deploy a supported operating system to a computer, and then assess the computer.
