Hello everyone,

      I work for a small computer repair shop. We do a decent amount of custom builds. We usually sell the same case, mobo and processor. I was thinking would it be easier just to make one grand image of win 7 and use that for future builds, instead of manually installing all the drivers, drivers etc..... Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

There are enterprise solutions that can push out software with system administration tools.  You can create an image of a completed installation and use that over and over again using a slipstreamed copy with RT Se7en Lite.  Ninite could also help, but that is more of a one-stop for installing multiple programs at once.

I'm doing exactly that now with our XP to Win7 upgrades OP.


I have a disk Image that I just just clone with Acronis True image, then stick in the new machine. Windows activation is done after this. I literally cloned it the second it loaded after the 100 or so updates that add on SP1. Saves me many hours of work, and network bandwidth.


Win 7 license has to be activated after, and machine name changed... But as the specs on the machines are identical I've found it great.


edit: then after this I install our enterprise installer (we use wpkg), to install all the other software we use.
