I looked at the tutorial http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/888-q...able.html?ltr=Q and it is just what I need. I am working at deploying windows 7 across campus and I was wondering if there is a way to have a batch file do this so I don't have to manually do it on each system since there are over 100.

If your in deployment stage than I would create a MASTER Image (Student computers Master) of your pc with the proper software, updates, this, and etc. and deploy it over the network simultaneously. If you have a Master Image, than it would be easier to maintain the Mater copy. Students do attend to do weird things, and if you have any problems ie viruses you can restore that to that image.

Yes that is my plan. I have everything ready to go and the master image in audit mode. the problem is when I make this change the quick launch disappears when the Image is syspreped and deployed. I was thinking about having a batch file that runs on login in the default profile and when a new profile is created and logged in the batch file runs makes the quick launch section on the task bar then deletes itself. The problem I have is aside from doing a right click go to folder click select I have no idea what the commands and what not are running to create this.

We use Windows Deployment System (WDS) with server 2008. Same thing, you build a base image and have drivers available for multiple computers. When the computer boots, it detect the drivers it needs and runs. We have a second product called Spec Ops that deploys packaged apps... like Office, CS4, etc... The problem I have seen is that it unicasts vrs multicasts. That slows things down when imaging greater than 25 at one time.

This is a new procedure for us as we just started using 2008 on our servers. If you have Novell, we have used ZenWorks. Both of these package can image different drive sizes than the original drives size.

For onezies... I hook up to a usb hard drive and use DriveImage XML. This is a freebee for personal use, but it lacks features. Still, it is a lot easier than
loading everything manually.
