I primarily use Windows 7 machines currently and was wondering if there is any reasons why I should not upgrade to WinPE 4.0. Would there be any issues I would run into with using WinPE 4.0 for Windows 8 and Windows 7 machines? I know Windows 7 is supported, but I wasn't sure if there was any known issues. Any feedback is greatly appreciated.
There is one issue that's been popping up that may impact some environments: if the processor doesn't support NX/DEP (which I believe some ATOM processors do not and maybe other), then Win 8 and Win PE 4.0 will not work. Here's a brief thread discussing the issue: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/configmanagerosd/thread/8faa337b-a648-49b4-8431-49c022b96e04

I have also just switched my Win 7 deployment share to 4.0 and haven't noticed any issues. It is definitely faster though not by a massive amount.
I haven't upgraded our old XP deployment share as I'm a bit worried about compatibility with some of the OLD machines.
No issues works like a charm!
Although if your using MDT2010 I suggest to upgrade to MDT2012 when that alot faster than MDT2010 because of using ImageX instead of Setup.exe. ;-)
