    by , 31st January 2011 at 01:12 PM
    As I've just spent a few hours getting this sorted, I thought I would share my experience in blog form in the hope that someone finds it useful.

    First up, I should point out that much of this blog can be found at the following link, and it also adds a cool way of adding printeres to specific Active Directory components, such as Groups, OUs or even specific users...

    by , 26th January 2011 at 08:43 PM
    Hello again everyone! Yep - Im still here, and after a little career break - back at it again. I spoke to quite a few people about Deploying Windows 7 (particularly including Bitlocker) on the EduGeek Stand at Bett (where I lurked with intent for most of the show)... so here is my complete guide to how it is done...

    1. Make sure you have got SCCM set up properly.
    Sounds simple doesnt it... well its often not quite as simple as it sounds. So, part one is going to deal mainly ...

  3. Windows 7 - First Live Test

    by , 21st July 2010 at 07:37 PM

    We've built a ICT Suite that is due to come on-line this September and invited 5 students to come in and try it out.

    - Windows key and Home did err, something. One moment it switched windows, the next minimised and restored ...
  5. Office 2010 joins our Windows 7 Journey

    by , 6th May 2010 at 11:08 AM
    Our Windows 7 Testing is continuing. Testing is going well and so far so good. A few little issues to be resolved by third party software suppliers which I'm hoping will be fixed soon.

    Had an issue with a new Dell Optiplex 380 that wasn't playing nice with WDS, but Fatmas seems to have fixed that now.

    Office 2010 has been released to Volume customers, so I'd thought I'll take a look and see wether or not including Office 2010 in our Windows 7 deployment would be an ...
