Download Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (ADK) for Windows 8/10

The Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (Windows ADK) has the tools you need to customize Windows images for large-scale deployment, and to test the quality and performance of your system, its added components, and the applications running on it.

When you try to create bootable media for AOMEI Partition Assistant or AOMEI Backupper, it may fail to do so as the program can not find the necessary environment to create the bootable media, in this case, Installing the Windows ADK toolkit (with Windows PE feature selected) is required.

You can download Windows ADK from Microsoft's official site, click here.

  • Starting with Windows 10, version 1809, Windows Preinstallation Environment (PE) is released separately from the Assessment and Deployment Kit (ADK). To add Windows PE to your ADK installation, download the Windows PE Addon and run the included installer after installing the ADK. This change enables post-RTM updates to tools in the ADK. After you run the installer, the WinPE files will be in the same location as they were in previous ADK installs.
