Dear all... Advice please! emoticon.Sleep.title
Is there an issue with
I am helping impliment our montessori school with a batch of new Latitude E5520 laptops, identically built with Win7 Pro x64. I had the good idea to prep one with all the installs and then re-image to the other five (5) HDs. However, using three common imaging methods available none will boot successfully. (I've done imaging before, many times, but in XP x32 environments.)
At this point I'd be happy to just get the OEM HD's back to their original standing (the two that have been altered) and I'll just do all the installs/updates manually -- At this point I've put in at least 20 hours and am SO frustrated.
Thank you for any feedback!!!
If you are going to use one of those cloning methods, then after cloning the disk and getting the boot error, boot to the Windows DVD and do a Startup Repair. Deploying/cloning Windows 7 is not like deploying/cloning XP.
