Re: Creating Custom OS Images?
I prefer RIS combined with software installation via GPO or SCCM myself.
no need to build an image, and crucially no need to update an image, start a machine, enter a password once and walk away. come back much later and log on. might need 1 more restart to finalise some software installations.
adding software to an image is a really good way to spend loads of time building images rather than doing work to improve anything...
It ties you to machines because your master image won't have all the drivers of all machines that you might want to use, it ensures that any rapidly updating software that you have (Jave, Firefox, Chrome Acrobat, flash, etc) are out of date within a month or so of you creating your image...

Im sick of people saying 'dont waste paper'. If trees wanted to live, they'd all carry guns.
