Your Windows 7 testing is over and it’s time for rapid deployment!  Yet while you’re excited about delivering Windows 7 to users, you might still remember your last upgrade.  Deploying Ghost images might have been easy back then, but it wasn’t very flexible.  What you want is deployment from a single image, where every computer starts from one golden master.  You also want better naming, giving each computer the correct name automatically.  Most importantly, you want the process automated so you’re not sitting around waiting to click buttons.  You can have all this and more with Microsoft’s free Windows Deployment Services.

Microsoft MVP Greg Shields has been rapidly deploying Windows computers for over a decade.  In this session full of tips and tricks, bring your laptop and get HANDS-ON with Windows Deployment Services.  You’ll learn the secret tricks for creating that single image that installs everywhere.  You’ll find WDS’ hidden solution for automatic naming.  You’ll learn the tricks you absolutely must know to automate Windows installation.  And you’ll leave with a functioning deployment solution you can take home to begin deploying immediately.

Are you’re ready for Windows deployment, but not ready for the learning curve?  Save yourself weeks of time and join this must-see HANDS-ON session.  You’ll walk away with exactly what you need to start rapidly deploying Windows 7 the moment you return home.

Please Note:  Attendance at this session requires a laptop with dual processors and a minimum of 4 GB of RAM.  Attendance also requires the purchase of Greg’s Windows 7 Deployment Solution Go-Stick.
