Automated Deployment of Windows 7 and Application Software on Large Installations of Computers Having Similar Hardware

Gopesh Tiwari and Narendra S. Rathore
Abstract— This paper describes an automated procedure to deploy a large number of identical computers with Windows 7 (preferably OEM version) along with a wide variety of application software. The normal Windows Deployment Service (WDS) has been tweaked with, to get a methodology which is suitable for a customized deployment. A quick overview of the setup, the scripts involved and overall methodology has been presented. The advantages over deployment method using conventional WDS and Windows Automated Installation Kit (WAIK) have been explained. Finally, the possibility to harness Intel vPro technology to remotely deploy the computers has been discussed.

Index Terms— Deployment, operating system, WDS, WAIK, cloning, imaging, automated installation, PXE, VPro.
