Windows 8 Deployment
i have image machines ready, check. i have had it agreed by powers above me to roll out windows 8, check. i have a target date during Easter hols, check. what I don't have is a way to deploy fast.
we use ghost and up till now its been great I can pull a image and send it out by console and all the PC's ghost and rename and job done. each PC gets it same name back e.g room1-01 get renamed back to room1-01.
but ghost doesn't seen to have been updated since windows 7 came out and doesn't look like it will for some time and only supports manual ghost for windows 8. e.g boot USB then rename manually.
So what alternatives do people know of that work with windows 8 without losing what ghost can do at the moment and without a load of hassle to image rooms.
MDT 2012 Update 1 is what you need.

You mean 'Blue' which is apparently progressing, I'm sure I read they were messing with it internally and it was due out this year Windows Blue: Codename Windows 9 | Windows X's Live
