Topic: New here and have a question Universal image

Hello,

I work at a company that refurbis laptop's, now i know how to make an universal image of windows 7,

but how does it work with windows vista?

We use FOG as a PXE server and i wanna make a universal image so evry brand laptop we can install automaticly with Driverpacks

Is this possible?

kind regard

Re: New here and have a question Universal image

Since Vista and Win7 are both NT6 The methods are extremely similar. Should be no issue to repeat what you already did, and make a few adjustments as required.

OKe somthing other,

We have a Datastore and we wanna have all the driver files there,

Is it possible that the DP_Install_Tool comminucate with the Datastore server? and takes the drivers from there?

Datastore have those servers enabled

Cifs/samba
NFS
Webserver

Edit 1:

Is it possible when i found more drivers (like from Siemens, HP, Dell) could i just add them? and wich folder?

I haven't tried it, but you could embed a symbolic link to point to the samba share where the DriverPacks are stored.
So , replace the x:\sad\nt5 and or x:\sad\nt6 folders with symlinks to point to the shared network folder.
