This has been published elsewhere on this site ( But I thought I'd keep a pointer here because I intend to publish some short articles and updates in this blog - much quicker than reissuing the entire document.


As a starting point, let's go back to the current version of the document (rev 9). There are siginifcant changes in rev 9. The inventory scanner has been designed out of the process. VB scripts have been replaced with compiled autoit scripts (sources included). An experimental method is suggested to inject mass storage drivers. The document covers both OSD and provisioning. As before, rev 9 remains Windows XP centric. No attempt is made to cover Vista.

The document has been superseded by Rev 9.1. See this article. I'll keep Rev 9 available here for a limited time "just in case".
