Did this a long time ago now but when I get back to work on Monday I will look see and let you know.How did you setup this network share?
1 single image for the entire site, Windows 7 deployed with MDT2010
We currently only deploy 32bit tho as a fair amount of our hardware is 32bit only still, I may have to make a 64bit image eventually as we get new systems with more memory.
5 images for us (all windows 7, dont use anything else now)
x86 and x64 for domain (every piece of software is installed on this that is needed, so we dont have to use managed software on them after!)
x86 and x64 for workgroup
All I do different for the workgroup and domain is, I copy the domain image, open it using WAIK and delete the powershell script that normally makes our computers join on the domain.
and a x64 admin image (admin computer are x64 captable, so 32bit is not needed)
What Im gonna try soon is to make it so staff laptops are joined to the domain with offline files so they can get their work at home and that also makes it so they cant install loads of rubbish on therir laptop, less chance of virues and you remotelly update software when needed
That way I will only have three images then
Drivers are not a problem has server 2008 r2 you can add driver packages to the wds console (when I get round to doing that)
3 images I think off the top of my head for some 4000-5000 laptops/desktops.
1 image that does laptops/desktops all Dell
1 image that does our Panasonic Toughbooks
1 image in the process of build/test for our agile working laptops to enable people to work from home so has a slightly different setup.
Any additional software is installed on site. Basics include our VPN software, clinical system, Office 2010 now I think, AV and Windows XP plus a few other small bits.
Oh and its all controlled using SysPrep
Amazing once you do some reading as to what is can do properly and intergrating MySysPrep, got rid of some 20 images!!
110 computers of varying hardware and ages and 1 XP image. Also using MySYSPREP.
Two images one Window 7 32bit and the other W7 64bit, coupled with MDT it's all we need for the 200+ computers.
12 Images and 150 PC's (all XP). Very much looking forward to rolling out 7 in the near future with just the single 32 bit image to start off!
