Windows® 7 OEM Preinstallation Kit
What is the importance of OEM preinstallation kit in Windows 7?
An original equipment manufacturer or OEM manufactured products or components are those that are purchased by a company and retailed under that purchasing company brand name. The OEM Preinstallation Kit for Windows 7 is vital for installing customized copies of Windows 7 automatically on multiple machines, and releasing it early would give local system builders time to prepare for the demand that the new operating system is expected to generate among both businesses and consumers worldwide. System builders who distribute this Windows software on a fully assembled PC must preinstall the software on the computer’s hard drive using the OEM Preinstallation Kit or OPK. The OPK is a set of tools and documentation that help you automate this process for the system builders who are new to deployment.
