I didn't test the sound on all 32 but the full volume Win 8 sounds from the fresh image were quite annoying. I had to turn them down.
I'm using one as I go around schools. Impressed so far. Just 2 issues. Screen doesn't require password when coming out of "sleep". Also, there doesn't seem to be a deep sleep/hibernation mode. So battery runs down while screen closed and not in use.
It's weird, the W501p was trivial to get running on 8, even a PXE bootable NIC on the detachable keyboard I think. I just installed it from a USB DVD though and could have booted MDT the same way to apply an image, probably even with EFI native.
Hi, We have just bought a lot of these and I need to image them. would you be able to list step by step how I would go about creating an image and deploying it. I have used the built in Windows Image creator in Windows 7 but for some reason these will create an image using the Windows 7 file recovery but will not burn a boot disk. Any help and advice you can give me on imaging a W510 with Win8 Pro would be gratefully appreciated. Thanks
