You want inexpensive?  How about free?

Just be sure to be aware of the licensing/OEM requirements.

All you need are two 8 Gig (or larger) flash drives.

The Microsoft Windows Automated Installation Kit works great, and it's free!

I keep a library of WIM files and then just copy whichever one I need to my install flash drive and away I go.

You could also have a flash drive for each make/model of computer you are installing it on.

With how cheap flas drives are now, it's definitly cost effective.

Thank you but why the "B" grade?  What does "na" mean?

Thank you for the points but what I posted was identical to what ScottCha posted, I was just 4 seconds behind.  If a moderator wants to award all points to ScottCha I won't object.

LOL!!  That's ok...don't worry about it.

It's all good.

I'm just wondering why we got a "B" grade with no explanation.
