Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) is a recovery environment that can repair common causes of
unbootable operating systems. WinRE is based on Windows Preinstallation Environment (Windows PE),
and can be customized with additional drivers, languages, Windows PE Optional Components, and other
troubleshooting and diagnostic tools. By default, WinRE is preloaded into the Windows 10 for desktop
editions (Home, Pro, Enterprise, and Education) and Windows Server 2016 installations.
B: Windows Deployment Services (Windows DS) is a new and redesigned Windows Server version of
Remote Installation Services (RIS). Windows DS is used to install operating systems to set up new
computers through a network without having to be physically present at each computer and without having
to install directly from a CD or DVD. Windows DS is commonly used to deploy Windows operating systems
in large to medium size business environment computers.
C: The Windows Automated Installation Kit (Windows AIK) is a set of tools and documentation provided
with Windows operating system. It supports the configuration and deployment of Windows operating
systems. Administrators can use Windows AIK for automating Windows installations, capturing Windows
images with ImageX, configuring and modifying images, creating Windows PE images, and migrating user
profiles and data. Windows AIK includes various Windows tools such as Volume Activation Management
Tool (VAMT), Users State Migration Tools (USMT), etc.
D: Windows System Image Manager (Windows SIM) is a Windows tool that is used to create answer files
(unattended.xml) and network shares. It is also used to modify files available in a configuration set. This
answer file is then transferred to the master computer, which is used for creating the installation image.
