Yesterday I began reading up on deploying Windows 7 to our laptops. Wow, what a change from XP’s imaging process. I guess this is what I get for skipping Vista! For XP, we are using a small Sysprep script that changes the machine name, strips the SID, and joins our domain. In order to get the deployment tools for Win7, I had to download a 1.7 GB file with the deployment tools and documentation. Yesterday I spent 3 to 4 hours reading through the documentation, and am really feeling overwhelmed. The Microsoft documentation sucks, and is overly complex.
I’m open to suggestions about better documentation, or a good book to read!
