Need to push a new image to multiple computers
Alright here is what we are trying to do. We have a couple hundred computers we need to downgrade from Win7 enterprise to professional. We need to keep the users existing profiles on almost all of these computers. We have the Dell K1000 and K2000 appliances as well. We are thinking of trying to accomplish this something like this:
We want to run a script that will create a new partition on the drive, push the image to that partition, change the boot.ini to include the new image, use USMT to capture the profiles of the original image and import into the new image.
We want to do something like this so incase something happens we do not lose the original profiles of that computer. We are doing about 70% of these at remote locations and cannot send down manager. We want to test at our main location until it is perfected the best that it can be.
Any thoughts or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
