* Enhanced support of Microsoft deployment tools (Microsoft Deployment 
Toolkit, Windows PE)

To take advantage of the new functionality, create a new 3.3 MDT Bundle by 
using Fixlet 46 in the site. To use the new features, update your Bare 
Metal Servers to Tivoli Provisioning Manager for OS Deployment 7.1.1
