I'm doing a software installation on a lot of computers, I'm installing windows 7 pro and then installing each program individually (with a script and silent installs). Is there a better way of doing this?

I've looked at the windows image method but it requires a volume licence which I do not have.

The computers all have wiped hard drives hence the fresh install.

  • take images individually for each computer. this way you won't need a volume licence. – Mustafa AKTAŞ Feb 16 '16 at 11:57
  • Please link to the information that makes you think creating images require a volume license. – Ramhound Feb 16 '16 at 12:57

  • There is not a single statement on that website that says you must have a volume license to create your own installation media. – Ramhound Feb 16 '16 at 13:04
  • Ninite is a great tool for installing multiple applications at once. It can't be used for custom applications, but they have an extensive list of popular ones. – root Feb 16 '16 at 14:26
