    Very slowly....

    Alternatively, if you have 2003R2 or 2008 servers in a domain, you can use Windows Deployment Services to roll out either the base OS or a pre-configured reference image.

    Note this is not something you can decide on one day and do the next -- you will need a considerable amount of planning to get it right (and to avoid having to re-deploy if mistakes are made). is a good starting point, or consider hiring an experienced consultant

        OK, so you can use WDS then
        As I suggested, do your research and planning first

            Not knowing anything about your environment, it is difficult to give "detailed" anything, but to save you the trouble of spending 5 seconds on I have done that for you:
            http://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en...meta=&aq=f&oq=

            You have a number of steps to jump through -- creating a reference machine with installed apps, sysrepping and imaging it, creating automated install scripts and then deploying it. If you mess things up, you may have to redeploy all 100 machines, so please take the time to plan it for your own environment. This is one case where, if you have no experience, hiring a consultant may be well worthwhile.
