I used to work in IT support of a large bank and when we had new PC's delivered for our users we installed a windows image which contained the OS, Office, other apps, policy settings etc.
I now run my own IT support company looking after small to medium sized businesses and would like to create a similar standard build with an OS, apps etc. The clients dont have volume licensing, we just buy PC's with OEM builds on them already - trouble is these OEM builds generally come with loads of bloatware which you dont need and slow the machine down. So what I am after if its possible is a way of making a build that will accept the OEM product key during installation and would be able to be installed on a variety of hardware - required drivers being installed after as nessecary. I dont know if this is possible but was wondering if anyone out there had done something like this?
