We have a scenario where we have 60 computers that need to be loaded with Windows7 at our company as well as have all windows updates installed. Our company has an internet especially for visitors and since these computers are for a client the contract states they are never to be connected to our own companys network. Therefore, they must be installed on the visitor side of our network. The problem is we will have to install our own hubs (can't use switches as they would take the other switches down) to install the updates onto multiple computers at once. If we do this it would take around 3 hours per install. Does anyone know a way to download all the necessary updates from windows and put them on a disk or flash drive? This way we can easily load teh updates? The other option is to update one system and make a copy of it and run sysprep to install this copy on all the other machines. We have yet to receive word if the contract will allow us to do this.
To point one other thing out, the contract stipulates the machines always receive the latest updates but will never be able to access the internet upon shipping and arrival to their destination. So we are unsure how we will get these updates to these machines as well. Any Ideas?
