    Can you Image a PC already connected to a ?network

    Hi,

    I'm replacing some of our PC hard drives with SSD's and wondered how to transfer what's already on the PC to the new SSD? My question is can i image the current PC which is already connected to the domain by syprepping it and capturing an image with WDS and deploying that image back to the new hard drives?

    sysprepping removes the device from the domain.

    Sounds like a good option. We only have 5 so this might be the best solution. Thankyou!
