One of our offices uses about 60 iMacs of various ages all running MacOS X (10.8) and VMware Fusion with a Windows 7 image.
Over the past few weeks, I have been trialling a pure Windows setup (via Bootcamp and Windows 7 Pro) and have everything they need in there office running OK on Windows only. The aim is to now trial 5 staff on a pure Windows system, and upon positive feedback, convert the entire office to Windows only.
The problem I have is that I need to provide a flowchart for the installation of Windows on these 60 iMacs and quote on the licensing and time for the project (start to finish).
I'm hoping there is a way to configure one iMac (right up to the point before a user input's their user account) and then image/clone that config to all other iMacs. The concern I have is the different hardware some of the iMacs may be using...
When you install Windows via Bootcamp, it downloads the correct drivers and software into a package that accompanies the Windows 7 install image. Will this package contain the bits it needs for older (intel based) iMacs as well?
If not, does anyone have any suggestions that will help speed up the installation of 60 Bootcamp configurations?
