my company has just purchased 250 dell optiplex 360 desktop computers. these all come with windows 7 pre-installed. i want to install ms office, adobe reader, and a small number of other applications. what is the best way to create an image and deploy this to all the computers? does the version of windows 7 installed need to be activated?
we currently deploy out xp systems using wds. the image was created by running sysprep on a machine i configured and capturing this to the wds server? will the same process not work with windows 7?
