Small business deployment RRS feed

  • Question

  • hi,

    A friend of mine purchases old computers and refurbs them, they are usually hp / dell boxes and have no OS but do have COA stickers. He is currently using a CD install method for each machine and then downloads the drivers manually. What I wanted to know is, is there a faster method of deploying Windows XP? I did some work with RIS at college, but that was a long time ago and I'm not sure how that would work in this case becuase each machine has different COA numbers.

    Also is there a legal way of deploying the drivers and some software during the install?
