Image to HDD for duplication

Recommended Posts

We're needing to send a HDD with our image to a vendor to be placed on 700+ laptops. We also use a duplicator in our office to occasionally put images on multiple HDDs.

My question is, will this work with SmartDeploy.  I thought if I shutdown right after the image was applied to the HDD, that it would then be possible to duplicate the drive. But, I think the naming of the system occurs before the shut down, so every system ends up with same name. Is that the case?

The reason I suspect this, is that we're ending up with systems having the wrong name, despite it suppose to be pulling the serial using WMI.

The name is generated/specified during the deployment phase, before the restart occurs. It is set into the Answer File for Windows Sysprep that is created by the Deploy Wizard.
