At work, I have multiple rooms with 10 to 20 PCs inside. They should all have the same image applied on their disks. In order to install such configurations, we usually clone one by one each of the computers, with Norton Ghost or Clonezilla, depending on which CD we have on hand. The process is kind of slow, because the source image is actually an hard drive from another operational PC. In order to make it faster, we first have to wait for the first PC to be cloned, then we got two hard drives containing the image, so we can use both of them for imaging two other PCs, and we keep going on until every PC is imaged.
Now, we want to make the process faster and easier. We first thought about broadcasting the image via the network, but we are still under a 100 megabits network. Is there any other ways to make the imaging process a little bit faster?
Note : the size of the image to restore is something about 35 GB.
