What is a Windows Provisioning Package?
A Windows provisioning package is a file that contains a set of configuration settings for the operating system. With it, you can configure a device without having to install an image on it. You can also configure multiple devices with one package, and you can set up devices without network connectivity. It's best for deployments of up to a few hundred computers.
You configure Windows provisioning packages using the Windows Configuration Designer. This tool is a component of the Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (ADK) for Windows 10, but you can also download it as an app from the Microsoft Store.
You can install a Windows provisioning package in a number of ways. You can use removable media, such as a USB drive or an SD card. You can also attach it to emails or download it from a network share. You can even deploy it using NFC tags or barcodes.
