Just 10 days ahead of the Windows 7
General Availability deadline, Microsoft made available for download the preinstallation resources associated with the RTM Build of the latest Windows client. The Windows 7 OEM Preinstallation Kit (OPK)
is now up for grabs via the Microsoft OEM partner Center. But donít let the name fool you, the OEM Preinstallation Kit for Windows 7 RTM is a collection of resources designed for system builders, namely custom PC integrators, rather than original equipment manufacturers. With the downloads, system builders get an introduction to Windows OPK, guidance on how to prepare their labs, deployment instructions as well as video demonstrations. What they donít get is the actual Windows 7 RTM bits, which are not included in the OPK.
