What i am trying to do is Make a Reference machine with vista business on it, then deploy this to 30 of the same computers.
My knowledge of sysprep is limited, i can take one image strip the drivers and put it onto another machine using the sysprep /generalize option.
All in all, i need to make a machine where all of the apps will be installed. The network printers are configured. All of the drivers are installed. I have some brother universal and specific ricoh drivers , but do not know how to integrate them. As well as these printers will they be configured after i run the generalize option. Also would like them to have any computer name it really does not matter but to be able to join the domain automatically , i have a dhcp server running that i can assign the ip address. Also to format the drive using whole drive as partion, essentially no user interaction at all. Is there some ms app i can use like system center of WDS help me with this or is this going to just be a scripting nightmare.
Essentially i need some way to make this all as clean and easy as possible.
