A Platform Pack contains all of the device drivers and hardware-specific software required for a device. SmartDeploy leverages patented boot time driver injection technology to ensure all the drivers needed for a specific device are automatically installed as part of deployment.
SmartDeploy technicians build Platform Packs for major OEM, Windows-certified business class devices. Platform Packs are available for supported SmartDeploy customers and fees (if applicable) are based on support level and model. During your trial, we ask that you use an existing Platform Pack from the library.
You will need to provide:
SmartDeploy requires the use of a Virtual Machine (VM) to build your golden reference computer. Please see the Release Notes for a list of supported virtualization platforms.
Users must supply Operating System media (and any other application media, e.g. Microsoft Office) to create a golden reference computer. Please review the Microsoft re-imaging rights to ensure that you are compliant. Microsoft Licensing Guidelines
While it is possible to use retail and OEM license keys with SmartDeploy, as a best practice we recommend obtaining a Volume License Agreement from Microsoft. Visit the Microsoft website to learn How Volume Licensing works or visit the Volume Licensing Service Center.

I was surprised how quick it was to make my first image with SmartDeploy. SmartDeploy is easy. We didn't have any issue setting it up and the documentation was very good.
