Personally I install all programs required one 1 machine, they tend to be...
MS Office - Access, Excel, Powerpoint, Publisher, Word
Open Office - As above (except publisher) as our netbooks run linux and need to have cross platform access.
Magix Music Maker Basic - I obtained a licence to use in educational establishments
Movie Maker 2.6
Kompozer (Poor mans dreamweaver)
Then when installed, I make 1 image and put it onto 6 external HDD's.
Then I install W7 on each machine, and have the image blitz out over 6 machines at a time. I got fed up with Acronis / Ghost / FOG as it occassionally caused errors. If I do it this way, I can eliminate errors before I make the image.
- Create the Gold image in VMWare, install all software and back up with Veeam each night (in case of any oopsies along the way)
- Snapshot \ duplicate before capturing to SCCM
- Deploy via SCCM with WMI-based driver packs for each machine type
- Revert snapshot \ use duplicate VM, run sysprep with copyprofile to get mandatory profile
- Manually copy profile to share and test
By using the VM I can run capture \ profile changes as many times as I want and not care about the image going wobbly from too many attempts at sysprep. SCCM does all the legwork pushing out the image
