Updating A Department Lab

How to Use:

Re-image Linguistics Lab machines (Timber hall building Room 14)

What you need to re-image a computer?

  • 1. Windows/PE boot CD
  • 2. The ghost image DVD's set that store the image among them.

Following the steps listed below to re-image a computer:

  • 1. Boot from CD with Windows/PE inserted. Be sure to press ENTER to start the boot process when you see "press any key to boot from CD...". If you see Windows booting up, then you have missed that message. You need to reboot the machine.
  • 2. It takes a little while to boot WIN/PE. A menu finally shows up. Click on Ghost32 to start Ghost.
  • 3. Click "OK". Click "Local", "Disk", "From Image".
  • 4. Eject and remove the WIN/PE CD from the CD-ROM Drive and then insert the first DVD from the set "Disc 1".
  • 5. Click Look in: "drop down menu" and click "CD-R or DVD drive". Click once on the latest Image with .gho extension.
  • 6. Ghost should pre-selected Drive 1 as the destination drive, click "OK" to continue.
  • 7. Next screen will show the destination drive detail, click "OK".
  • 8. Click "Yes" to start the re-image process. It takes several minutes for the current image to finish the first of the three DVD image set. After it finishes the first Disk, a box will pop up and ask you for the second part of the image. Insert the second DVD inside the DVD Drive and then click "Browse" and click once on the file with orange icon. The re-image process continues. And son for the third disc.
  • 9. When "clone complete" box pop up. You can remove the Disc from the drive and reboot.
  • 10. Wait for few minutes for sysprep tool to start the mini windows setup that takes several s minutes too.
  • 11. Continue the installation as system default and when the prompt you for computer name, you can rename the computer whatever name you want or leave it as default and press "next".
  • 12. The installation process will continue and the system will reboot.

Post-configuration steps:

  • 1. After the computer is rebooted the post-configuration batch will ask if want to execute or not. Go ahead and press enter to run it. At the end of the post-configuration, the computer will reboot automatically.
  • 2. During the post-configuration, the script will pause and let you configure system and make necessary changes The last step is to install Deep Freeze to freeze the computer.

This "sysprepped" image is self-contain. Meaning, it will run Windows update every day at 12:15 AM and shutdown at 03:00 AM. Therefore, the classroom computer needs to be set to boot at 12:00 mid night  every day in the BIOS.
