    WDS

    WDS Seems to be taking an age to image machines, 4 machines may take almost a day, and a full classroom even longer. Is there a way to speed up deployment or is it just one of those things which can take a while?

    Start "Windows Deployment Services" from "Administrative Tools". Browse to and expand "Multicast transmissions", right-click your deployment name and select "Deactivate".

    Thanks for that, but Multicase isn't enabled, I'm just thinking that maybe the image size are massive and its going to take a while.

    Well, how big is the image?

    Have you tried a PC connected to the same switch as the WDS server for speed?

    Is the switching gigabit, is it capable of multicast?
