  • I think so. I believe MDT checks whether you have either WAIK or ADK installed.

    From the MDT console you could do an Update of a remote deployment share. When you do an Update of a deployment share the original boot image files are copied to your local %TEMP% directory from the target server and the processign is done locally. Once it is finished the image is copied back to the server, this means that either ADK or WAIK must be installed locally.

  • You can. You install the full MDT environment and when opening the console on your workstation you can open any deployment share on any servers you have around by specifyng the URL: \\servername\deploymentsharename$ (providing that thye all are on the same MDT version).

  • Not entirely sure what you are asking, but you can install MDT on a Windows workstation and run the Deployment Workbench from there.
