This post will see the details of Windows 10 ADK versions and SCCM support scenarios. This post also comes with ADK download links.
Also, this post will give some more information about SCCM 1902 and supported ADK versions.
Windows 10 and Windows 11 ADK and WinPE add-on help customize Windows images for organizations.
I feel these version numbers and supported scenarios for Windows 10 ADK with SCCM/ConfigMgr are a bit complex.
Hence thought of putting it together to kind of help IT admins.
We will have more news and details released about Windows 11 ADK in future posts. I don’t think there is any drastic change with Windows 11 ADK and WinPE.
Also, SCCM support for Windows 11 ADKs will follow the similar pattern that they use for Windows 10.
NOTE! – As we mentioned in the Windows 10 ADK installation step by step guide, we don’t recommend using SCCM or ADK version combination, which is Backward Compatible as per Microsoft documentation.
Windows 10 ADK Support for SCCM
The following table will help you understand the support mechanism between SCCM versions and Windows 10 ADK versions. I have covered only the fully supported Windows 10 ADK with SCCM versions.
Since we don’t have any special feature update scenarios for Windows 10 anymore (at least since the last few updates), the Windows 10 ADK versions are not changing much, and even the support matrix is not switching much.

Windows 10 ADK Upgrade Myths
I don’t think Windows 10 1903 ADK upgrade process will impact your custom boot images and OSD process. I have done many Windows 10 ADK upgrades without impacting the OSD process at all.
You don’t have to worry about the SCCM OSD impact while upgrading Windows 10 1903 ADK upgrade (especially if you are using custom boot images and MDT boot images).
