Description Jeff Nelson 2016-05-27 23:35:12 UTC
Description of problem:
Windows 2016 is expected to release in the RHEL-7.3 timeframe.

We should create a directory hierarchy for Windows 2016, just like we do for the other Windows releases, in which the drivers for the release will be placed.

Windows 2016 drivers should also be incorporated into the .ISO and the .VFD files.
