I'd like to automating deployment of test machines (all of which are naturally different). I have a half dozen boxes that need to be able to be brought up and torn down with frequency.
I could install them all with the right drivers, create disk images, then use an imaging tool to re-copy the entire disks, but that would mean a different image for each system, and images don't offer much flexibility. I'd rather quick format the boot partition and copy stuff over in BartPE. Then I'd have the the flexibility to only copy certain things here and there.
So, is there a simple way to copy the right folders on it from an existing installation and make it boot?
Virtualization isn't an option.
