    Windows 8 tablet on windows 7 network

    Hi all,
    Forgive me if there is already a thread on this.

    I am currently trying to setup a windows 8 tablet on our network. The problem is our network is all setup for windows 7 so the GPO's are not what they want to be for windows 8. For example our start menu for windows 7 is very big with department programs. When this goes onto the tablet the start menu looks ridiculous.

    My question is : is there a way in which i can tell GPO to use one GPO if its windows 7 or a different one if its Windows 8.

    Thanks

    Liam

    Two options:

    1. Create Windows 7 and Windows 8 security groups for the computer accounts in AD and add the appropriate clients to each group. Then modify the security filtering on the GPO to apply only to the correct group.
    2. Use WMI Filters to apply Group Policy to a target operating system

    Hi,
    i have created a WMI filter with this code :
    select * from Win32_OperatingSystem where (Version like "6.2%" or Version like "6.3%") and ProductType = "1"

    i have then applied this to the group policy i want it to use if the operating system is windows 8.

    It doesnt seem to be working. when i logon the windows content on the start menu appears and all the policy's applied to windows 7 have applied to windows 8.

    Am i missing something?

    Thanks for the reply
