- Image and Deploy New Computers 2 answers
I frequently run into the issue that I need to perform fresh installations of Windows, mostly Windows 7, but it's kinda tedious to also install some "common software" every time I install the OS. By "common software" I mean programs that I need to install on every computer that I install Windows on, like office suites, graphic design software, media players, typographic files, desktop tweaks, etc.
I've seen that at some places, custom Windows images are offered with some tweaks included (even already activated).
Is there a way that I can burn a "snapshot" of an already existing installation to a disc so that I can install it on another computer and that this new installation already has the aforementioned software installed in it (as it is in the original installation)?
