Using Ghost for Client Deployment

Active Member
We are looking at deploying 100+ FAT clients. We want to use ghost to create and deploy a common disk image. Has anyone done this, and were there any issues.

I think that once the image is loaded to the client, all we will need to do is have the client get a license from the deployment server. This should in turn create a record in the F9650 table for the machine key.

Will this work, or is there more to it?

Ghost has not been effective for OneWorld since it replicates what should be
a unique license code to all of your fat clients. Use ghost for the OS and
possibly Office software but not for OneWorld.
