If you're already in Active Directory, you might consider RIPrep.  That
way you can install your apps ahead of time.  Depending on how different
your 8 models are, sysprep will handle the hardware differences.  I'd do
1 for desktops & 1 for laptops.

Hi

I need to create an unattended install for Windows XP for 8 different
model desktops/laptops.  The machines will be logging in to Windows AD
(Windows 2000 Server).  I can do basic unattend.txt type work but was
wondering what apps people are using to script their OS's (GUI based and
easy to use but powerful).  Im not too good at VBScript, Kix etc so if
there was a GUI front ended app that does the hard work, that would be
great.

I basically need to be able to automate a script that installs an OS,
some apps, hotfixes, puts the pc in a domain, adds system variables and
syspreps ready for ghosting (which would be the method of deployment).
We have 700 desktops I need to rebuild hence me wishing to automate the
entire process

How do people out there do this??

Thanks
Rose
