Hey,

We've recently recieved our UK license and thus been able to upgrade to the 3.4 version of K2000.

Now, with all the .wim support files / updates done I'm yet to manage my system installations properly.

I'm looking to create 2 default images for my machines, 1 for staff and 1 for students, they will all be Windows 7 64-bit Enterprise. However using a 'clean' windows WIM doesn't seem to work as I wanted it to. The image is applied and all is well apart from the fact that no drivers are installed.

If I've understood everything right the driver feed isn't used in system imaging and the drivers have to be added through post-installation tasks?

What would be the easiest way to make the default images from here on? We're only using Dell machines and I'd rather not have a seperate image for every model we have if possible.

Use this for the drivers on WIM and system images. The drivers should be placed in \\K2000\post_install.

You should be syspreping to reset the SID so you can use this method I have been using with great success.

With traditional methods for systems imaging, each image captures a particular hardware and software configuration at a specific moment in time—static, unchanging, unmanageable.
