Hello,

Im getting a bit tired of formatting and installing so lets do this the right way: A semiautomatic installation.

It needs to ask me only the following questions:

PC name
User name
Domain the PC or not*

* - With this, a pop screen stating the mac address of all currently connected media would be nice. Some IP addresses get reserved via MAC address so I want to assign itduring setup.

All else should be automatic. Also I want to slipstream all possible updates to date to avoid all those restarts.

I pretty much know how to do PXE setups since Ive read some tutorials and they look pretty easy.

Whats the best way to do this? nLite existed a long time ago but Im not sure if there is better alternatives now...

Thank you

Could set up WDS on a server and get MDT going as well for LiteTouch Deployment.

Then WSUS as well for fun.

 

 

I'm setting this up at home but more of a lab thing for figuring out issues at work.

I'm not exactly sure. If it didn't install help files you should be able to find that information on TechNet. Their docs do not require an account.
