I have always used ghost to deploy software on PC’s running XP. I would install the XP OS, microsoft updates, software, etc. After that I would create the image files with Ghost and use them to install on other PC’s.
Now I am preparing to roll out Win7 clients and found it doesn’t like being ghosted one bit. So I have been playing around with WDS for Win7 clients. Setting up and installing the Win7 OS was pretty straight forward. But how do I go about installing the microsoft updates, software, etc. like I did on my XP clients and then create a master file for other Win7 clients? I’m not seeing that with WDS? Or is it? If not, how are others taking care of this type of problem?
