Create a master image with all setting and updates.  Sysprep it and deploy that.

  • if you also have a kace 1000 you can have it do the patches for you after imaging

If you need help creating a new master image, this may help. http://www.professormesser.com/microsoft-70-680/capturing-an-image/

  • We have a k1000 and a k2000, but for enhanced security we deploy machines nearly as patched as possible. This downloads a good chunk of Windows updates from microsoft's site: http://www.windowsupdatesdownloader.com/Default.aspx directly so you know it is safe to use.

    I use http://www.wincert.net/forum/forum/179-win-toolkit/ to slipstream updates into Windows 7, but if time in imaging is not a huge issue you can generally throw all the updates in a post-install task on the k2000 and use this in a batch file:

    for /f %i in ('dir /ab *.msu') do wusa.exe "%i" /quiet

    That will only install *.msu extension updates, but that is a large portion of them.
