KACE K2000 Imaging Via USB Extremely Slow
Just wondering if anyone else has noticed how slow deploying WIM images via USB is. I have a 7GB Win 7 X64 WIM captured via the KBE. It contains no Post Installation tasks other than the WIM deployment. Currenty I can deploy this over our 100MB network in about 15 minutes.
If I setup this to deply via USB using the KACE isntructions it takes around 35 minutes.
The USB stick is not the bottleneck. If I use the same stick to capture and deploy the same image, using a different sector based imaging software Active Disk Image, it only takes around 7 minutes to deploy.
I would have thought at the very least I would get the same performance from the USB as we get rom our 100MB network. We have 700 PCs to image this coming December and at the moment it looks as though the K2000 will be sitting in the corner wasting power.
have you tried placing the Wim on a windows share? I use that method and it is a fast as using MS imaging solutions
