Has anybody tried this or implemented something like this.

Hello Kenneth,

I am so sorry for the late reply.

I was on vacation and I missed your email.

This is what we did to create.

1. Format the PC and install windows OS
2. With AdminStudio program, take a snapshot of clean machine as image
3. Install Magic application on client machine
4. With AdminStudio program, take another snapshot with Magic
5. In the AdminStudio, compare two snapshots. (You should be able to
see what files installed and extract them along with system files and
registry key)
6. Archive the extracted files , system files, and registry key as MSI
7. Create GPO policy for pharos release station and link MSI file that
you created in #6 to proper OU.
8. Pre-stage the computer object in AD & join the client machine to AD
9. Reboot the client machine and watch automatically Magic installs.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact us.


p.s. - if you would like to use SCCM, I will prepare the new instruction.
