Learn important Microsoft operating system (OS) installation and upgrade considerations and critical skills to ensure success of your installations. In this course, you will learn: to configure partitions and volumes, create redundant disk arrays, and convert disks; to configure disk formatting and distinguish between file system types and their use; to stage and configure alternate third-party drivers to load when necessary; and how to differentiate between the Workgroup and Domain setup, and when each is appropriate; to configure settings including time, date, region, and language. Observe how to perform driver management, including installation, update, and removal; to implement automated OS and software updates for Windows, MAC, and Linux; to use the factory recovery partition to reset a Windows installation; and to format the system volume (boot drive). Other issues covered: enumerating prerequisites for any Windows install and identifying which hardware compatibility tool to use for each OS compatibility; how Microsoft's application compatibility toolset has evolved since AppCompat; how to identify and mitigate OS compatibility/upgrade issues; and how to assess upgrade readiness. Course helps prepare for CompTIA A+ certification exam 220-1002.
