I need to install Windows 2012 or higher to 20 Rack servers as well as setup RAID 10 for each server.  The drive is 200GB each.  Each server has 4 identical drive.   I would like to know if it makes sense to configure one server with Windows 2012 and then clone the rest with a cloning device.  Once cloned the drive, I then put a drive back to the server and setup the computer name prior to turn on the RAID setup.   Is there any better way to install windows 2012 server on 20 Rack Servers.
