hi guys,

I've got a PC and I have around another x 20 PC's of the exact same model. I'd like to make an image of this and deploy it onto the other PC's to save the manual time. The server I'm on is on server 2008 R2.

Would you recommend using the Microsoft MDT tool at all for doing this? Have you used it?

Thanks
Yashy

I wouldn't recommend MDT as I think it's overkill.  I'd use WDS.  I'll send you a link here that will help, but really the best way to learn it is to add the WDS role on the server then open the feature after it's installed and open the Help from the menu at the top.  It's one of the few times that it's worked great for me.

Here is another great resource.
