  • windows 7 implementation

    Hi Guys,

    what have you guys done in the windows 7 migration from XP ?

    ive used the Microsoft MAP tool and it has found that 275 workstations are ready for windows 7 which is great but how do i find out which ones they actually are?


    is it possible to break it down by individual workstation?

    thanks guys

    I did a single migration a while back - I had to go from XP, to Vista, then Windows 7.

    Consider whether a migration like this is the best option or are you better just doing a new image and re-imaging the entire network ?

      We wiped all machines and started from scratch with a brand new Windows 7 image.

      Took us around 18 months to develop to a standard we were happy with deploying and we're now onto a level 2 phase of updating the image.

        hi Guys

        thanks for the replies

        i have a new image and is been rolled out now to all new procured machines and ones that have win 7 OEM licences

        but what i would like to find out via some tool is it possible to find what machines are actually out there and what are their specs (CPU,RAM,serial number,machine model, os version )

        to determine, do we do a mass roll out OR do we wait until they have an issue and reimage with out fixing the problem

        thanks guys

          Have a look at a tool called LanSweeper.

            Or SCCM, which will also manage the deployment (Zero touch) for you if you want
