I'm trying to deploy an image of a Dell OptiPlex 7050 with an i7 Core and a 256GB SSD to a Dell Optiplex 5050 with an i5 Core and a 512 GB SSD.  I know computers with the same hardware can deploy images to eachother, but I've tried with  some laptops of different models and the Windows files were corrupted.  Is there a way to know which computers can accept which images?  Would a 7050 image work on the 5050?

  • As long as it was sysprepped yes...

    But it always best to harvest images from Virtual Machines and NOT physical devices, a Sysprepped Image harvested from a VM... is an image you will be able to deploy to almost any device in the world.
  • To add to that, your sysprep answer file needs to be configured specifically to not persist drivers in order to avoid issues deploying across different models.

Yes, you can.

The image just needs to be sysprepped and don't have to be some drivers on board.
