MDT 2010 Windows 7 Flat Image Unattended Install
Firstly, Sorry If this has been asked a thousand times and answered a thousand times (Although I can't find the answer it it has, and no, its not 42! :rolleyes: )
Here my seneriao, Currently we roll out XP using RIS, but we have a flat XP CD with a choice of Sif files at build time for different styles of finish (Some GPO lock down, some 3rd party), not a sysprepped/riprepped image. By using this method we log on once, and it auto assigns the PC name and places it in the correct OU (Username we logon with at 1st build determines PC name and OU). We then push out software using MSIs over GPO's.
My Question is, how do I get this kind of flat "image" automation with Windows 7 and WDS (whether it be on 2k3/2k8) without taking an image, and without having to type in the PC name manually each time?
I have looked at countless tech articles and blogs, but they all seem to be about creating Images, which is not where I want to head, as I have just abandoned this practise with ghost! :D
Many Thanks for you answers in advance!
