    Hi gaurav_abbot,

    If I was in your situation I would have created a reference build on one of your laptops, and then run sysprep to remove any SID's etc.....

    There are free tools you could then use to capture the image like imagex /capture.

    Not sure what environment you are in but have you thought about MDT? Makes alot of lightwork creating and deploying images.

      There are multiple was to change the SID. http://www.google.com.au/#hl=en&sour...0f9b0605844ddb

      For future reference, choose a method that changes the SID when the image is being deployed. Most of my imaging deployments have been with Symantec Ghost and the SID is changed when the system reboots after the image has been deployed.
      1 1 was a racehorse.
      2 2 was 1 2.
      1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
      2 2 1 1 2

        30 laptops? I would use MDT 2010 with WDS to capture the reference (part of the process will sysprep the machine) and deploy either via a USB or using pxe boot. recently done this and very simple and efficient

        Cheers
