    LOL!!

    Anyway, much like people have said:
    Drivers disk for the 4 different machine makeups in the school
    Unatttended OS disks (until I get WDS or FOG working! lol)
    Ubuntu Live CD
    OphCrack for the odd machine that I've not got round to sorting from my predecessors network / workgroup hybrid he seemed to be running
    CloneZilla (both USB and CD)

    That seems to be about all I need. Anything else is stored on a network share that I can access using the tools above should I need to.

    Ok, so...

    Someone please explain to me the logic of announcing on a public forum that one uses unlicensed/illegal software in the course of doing their job?

    Not directed at anyone in particular, it's just asking for trouble imo.

    Guys,

    Please don't post links to illegal software on here.

    We're a professional forum, and as such we expect licence and terms of use compliance by all our members.

    Many Thanks

    Interesting thread as just creating our department usb stick so far:

    RM CC4 Build Disk
    UBCD
    Couple of scripts one for getting all rm log files & zipping. Then another that is used to change serial number after bios has been flashed.
    Just reading few of others people suggested (of course apart from hiren)

    All linked with nice grub4dos menu.

    Looks so much more professional to a customer when when he/she hears the infamous phrase "Oh shoot, it doesn't boot to USB!" followed by the divine sounds of organs and angel's harps as you open the Holy Grail of "ye ole compactus disci" and voila! - pc fixed!

    That would have been an appropriate comment 2 years ago, when the thread was made.

    Now... it's a necropost.

    ... and to this day the topic matter still runs rampant as some customers are not affected or care about such things as a date or time... hence the obvious flavor of age in my post!

    Point is... it STILL happens and these GOOD posts have helped out many ppl, myself included... otherwise if these threads were ACTUALLY necro (dead) then they would not still be here to help us out... ;-)

    SO: thanks for everyone's input on this thread, most of this is STILL good info and should not be considered dead because good info is NEVER dead - even if the original post was ONLY 2 years old... (betcha there's software/hardware that's older than 2yo in most customer's computers!)

    great site too... lots of info. Keep up the good work!
