WIN 7 and Office 2010 Deployment
we got both K1000 and K2000 appliances. been bit time but not much used .
now we are going to do a complete rebuild of IT setup. all DELL PCs needs to rebuild from scratch with WIN7 and Office 2010 and few other softwares that we use.
what is the best way forwrad to implement this.
we have 4 diffrent models of DELL PCs.
total 70 PCs.
is it best to build all models with win7 install office and other apps then capture images and deploy to all. or is there any other best way of doing it.
Utilize the post installs. It's saved me multiple times. You can add/change software rather quickly.
We also utilize this for our drivers. This saves you from having to inject your drivers into your different images. With a little setup this will take care of that for you.
You can include core applications in the build image itself
Office 2010 (Std) - By default..MS Access will not be there..
Adobe Reader 10
Flash Palyer Plugin
Flash Player ActiveX control
.NET 4.0 which is already there in Windows 7, just enable it
Java Runtime Environment 1.7.0_01 (Whichever is latest)
there are many roads to follow
Since you are doing a clean install, install your software on your master and configure user settings prior to syspreping.
