If you're basing these images on XP, what I would recommend is create a new image per machine. In your case three different machines which isn't a lot (you're lucky).Quote:
Capture an image that already has had Windows Update manually run - the problem here is i doubt i'm going to end up with one image, more likely it will be 3 or more. I don't want to have to keep refreshing images and potentially damaging the images just to install a couple of updates.
Install XP SP3, then install the Logistix Post XP SP3 Pack. Run Windows Update and install any additional applications you want part of the image.
Setup WSUS 3.0 which will then install any additional Post XP SP3 Updates as and when they're released in future. This is how I always do things and it works reliably :)
