I am looking to more automate the XP installation process. Right now I launch Norton ghost, pull an img with a directed cast from our server.
Start the process. Install. Wait. Come back, restart.
Strait away log on, restart.
Type in computer name, restart.
Add to our domain restart.
6 restarts. I got 150 people I have to help manage computers for. Instead I sit and reboot all day?
I was speaking with one of my coworkers. He said that over at one of his last jobs he had software that did this for him. ITs job is to make everyone more efficient, yet were not setting the standard with these manual processes.
Though there are a few things. Can't be a strait clone. We use Microsoft exchange and we want to keep the SID deities happy. Also I have to log on with my personal (and changing credentials) as I have administrator abilities. All computers use the same local admin / password.
Thanks for any ideas!!
