I've created an image for a Windows 7 machine that needs to be deployed out to about 20 machines. What are some tools I can use to load the image onto the machines and how do I do it in general?

Low cost if possible.

What's the easiest and cheapest way but also efficient? I have the image saved on a 32GB USB drive, and I used Clonezilla to create the image.

The answer is: use the FREE tool from Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT) 2012 update 1.

MDT download page
Deployment guide (Microsoft)
Technet videos

The good news is that it's easy to use. The bad news is the clonezilla image is useless.
Also the other machines need to be exactrly the same model. If not, you need to look at the drivers side.

Good luck,

Mike
