VISTA Multicast imaging RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm maintaining training room PCs.
    My current procedure with XP is
     - prepare a PC  
    - sysprep -reseal
    - take an image
    - multicast download, as often as required.

    Each PC take its configuration (name, @ip, product key) from a floppy containing a sysprep.inf, at first boot.

    A complete refresh of the PCs takes arround 20 minutes. No activation issue. (We are using a Select licensing option and a "No-activation-required"  key.)

    Many changes have been done with Vista and things looks quite complicated....

    What would be advice to keep things as simple as possible ?

    Could OEM activation be preserved with multicast imaging ?
