We are trying to create a single Windows 7 image that will work on all of our Dell models. We have successfully done this in the past with Windows XP. We followed the LANDesk Best Known Method for Deploying Windows 7 document and built our initial Windows 7 image on a Dell OptiPlex 780 without installing any drivers. The 780 image works on other 780s, 760s, and 755s, but when we try to deploy it to a Dell OptiPlex 745 or a Dell Latitude d620, the computer starts the Windows 7 swirling lights and then reboots and gives the option to launch startup repair or start Windows normally. So we built another Windows 7 image on a Dell OptiPlex 745, and it works on 745s and on the Dell Latitude d620, but it won’t work on 755s, 760s, or 780s.
Has anyone else encountered this issue and found a solution? Or has anyone successfully created a universal Windows 7 image that works on all of the above Dell models? Thanks in advance for any feedback.
