Explore and compare the various client-side operating systems and their installation processes. In this course you will learn: to identify and define what an operating system is; to differentiate between 32-bit and 64-bit processing; to differentiate between operating system vendors; and to understand the differences between the major smartphone and tablet operating system vendors. Learners also observe how to update limitations and compatibility concerns for vendor-specific operating systems; to identify the differences between versions of Microsoft operating systems; to determine appropriate editions of Windows client, based on customer profiles; and to configure desktop styles and user interfaces. You will learn how to choose the appropriate boot configuration based on needs; to choose appropriate types of installation methods based on deployment needs; to implement network and image-based deployments; how to recover a failed installation; and how to compare common operating system architectures, installation sources, and targets. The course concludes with exercises on aspects of common operating systems, including making distinctions between 32-bit and 64-bit architecture. Course helps prepare for CompTIA A+ certification exam 220-1002.
