    He's probably too busy reading books on AD!

    Ah, it's not even worth a PM (I've had a busy couple of days and forgot it TBH). It was an IT question (don't worry, not going to bother you with nonsense every 5 minutes), but I was curious as to how you did Windows rollouts for lots of machines. I was looking at this article

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/win...eference-image

    and it just made me think "no, fuckoff, surely it's not as complex as that?"

    Don't you just, I dunno, get an Acronis image or something of a machine that's going to have the same hardware, generalise it and bash it out via a network share, PXE or something? It's likely I haven't thought this through properly. If it's a complex answer, don't bother, I'll just do some more reading.

    I'm the PFY, TFB, and the KING!

    Pax - I normally just image using clonezilla.

    I have used no end of imaging tools from acronis, ghost, WDS using PXE and loads of others but just find clonezilla the easiest for the tasks in hand.

    If i was in one setting i would probably just setup WDS (or what ever the latest flavour of MS imaging services is) and image that way, but as i work in so many different settings having one setup for all just does not work, plus, i just don't have the time to set such things up.
