              WinPE Support



              WinPE PreBoot Support is the next step within Empirum OS Installer. It now allows all customers to create their own – Powershell based – packages and using their own tools – pretty similar as creating and using software packages on Windows. Having this flexibility, it gives you more options to realize full featured OS provisioning (e.g. including BIOS settings or updates using vendor specific tools).

                Empirum Software Development Kit (SDK)


                The Matrix42 Software Development Kit (SDK) provides powerful tools (PowerShell libraries and .NET libraries) to communicate with Empirum.


                  Matrix42 Replace Computer Tool (SDK Sample)


                  This tool is a useful C# example app using the Empirum SDK v1. Source code is provided with the package. Have you ever wanted to replace a computer which is assigned in many assignment groups? Want to add a computer which gets exactly the same software as an existing one? This is the tools you need.
