    I prefer hybrids. Every PC in the college gets a certain software loadout (Office, Adobe CC, Visual Studio, others). These are mostly large packages, it makes no sense to deploy them after the OS is deployed if they're going everywhere.

    Installing an OS to a secureboot enabled machine is easy enough to do if you're deploying from the correct environment. I use SCCM 2012 SP1 with a PXE enabled DP running on Windows 2012, no problems here so far.

    That's the problem then. You need WDS running on Windows Server 2012 or higher for PXE and secureboot to work. 2008 R2 doesn't cut it as I found out when I tried to get it working.
