Creating images of Windows 7 for mass deployment
Posted on 2011-03-21
Hi. I want to create an image of Windows 7 that can later be pushed to other desktops using something like Ghost.
With Windows XP, it seemed simpler. Install Windows XP and all applications and patches on a desktop. Then run the wizard to create a sysprep.inf file with the product key and other settings. Then run sysprep. Clone image.
I know Windows 7 has sysprep, and I know how to run that. But how do you create an answer file to automatically configure certain settings, like the product key and joining the domain, like you were able to do with the sysprep.inf file?
