A Completly Free IT Suite is our aim can you help ?
I have been working at this primary school for 3 years now but unfortunately we have no money at all in our IT budget. There are many reasons for this but the main one is that we bought 36 laptops 4 years ago brand new in trolleys that just are not up to the job. Batteries and wireless problems are the main problem. (Unfixable with no money).
So back to basics is the plan second user crt monitors from the local high school are abundant so we need some donated base units with xp pro license (oem attached) with original recovery media if available for compliance. 2 gb processors and 512 memory would be nice as a minimum spec but would not mind adding some second hand memory etc they dont need mint.
Has anyone ever done this before or attempted to do this before?
Can your school/business offer any donated base units?
We plan to use work experience people to help us install the units.
Openoffice and other freeware and our existing site licensed software like textbase textease etc
If you can help us please PM me or reply to this thread.
Sounds perfect could you PM me a
Landline number. Collection wise I have a volvo estate and a petrol account so collection from anywhere in the UK could be possable. Obviously Lancashire Cumbria Manchester Liverpool area would be best but to meet our goal I am prepared to travel that extra mile as you can see.
Minibus full of identical computers in mint condition
Yes if we could have identical stuff perfect but we can use a standard image accross a whole range of hardware nowadays (sysprep multiple hdd drivers etc)
Minibus is an option but would put diesel in it myself even though its more expencive can tell you dont drive lol
Thanks for the offer on the monitors you as always have been most helpfull.
