OEM Preinstallation Kit
The OEM Preinstallation Kit (OPK) for Microsoft Office 2010 Starter Edition is a set of tools, product files and documentations that would assist licensed original equipment manufacturers (OEMs)in preloading Microsoft Office 2010 Starter Edition and the PC Essentials on new systems for distribution to end users.
Language Interface Packs
Language Interface Packs (LIPs) would be downloaded easily. That is because the entire user interface is not at all translated. In the case of LIPs, they would require at least one parent language. It means, the parts of the user interface that are not translated into the LIP language would then be displayed in the parent language. When you download a LIP, you would be able to get the parent language requirements for that language. The parent language pack would then be installed before the LIP could be installed. You would also install more than one LIP, so that each of the user of the system could display the user interface a different language.
PC Essentials for System Builders Deployment Guide
This document would be able to provide the information that is necessary to preinstall all of the PC Essentials components on new computers for distribution to end users. This would also include complete installation instructions for Windows Live Essentials, Bing Bar, and the Bing / MSN browser defaults. Specific instructions for preloading Microsoft Office 2010 and the Microsoft Office 2010 Starter Edition are also being contained in the Microsoft Office Install Guide, which is referenced from this PC Essentials Deployment Guide.
OPK Deployment Methods
In the case of this document, it would visually detail the six different methods that are available to OEM partners. This is when you are deploying Operating System and application layers. This would also describe the various pros and cons of each method, the various prescriptive steps to complete each method, and the also the user experience for each scenario. Microsoft has strongly recommended that you would provide a customizable end user experience, and that is a best facilitated by using the Out-of-Box Experience (OOBE).
