Tough question, depends on:
- Size of your image?
- Network Infrastructure/topology - image pulled across wan, local subnet connections, switch utilization, machine nic settings (100 full, gig, etc..)
- etc... others will add more.
I would venture to guess that the limiting factor (bottleneck) would be your network in lieu of LANDesk. We have imaged 600+ in a day, doing about 30-50 per site simultaneously.
It pretty much always boils down to networking bottlenecks, since this is going to affect you whether you go uni-cast or multicast ... and the quality & speed of the NIC's on your Core & image-holding platforms matters a lot.
So that'll be you biggest bottleneck. Size of the image just increases the amount of time - which is / is not much of a factor based on the speed & quality of your network.
A difference of 1 GB on an image is a bigger deal on a 10 Mb half duplex network, than it is on a full Gigabit network (for instance).
It all pretty much comes down to network gear one way or another .

Technically anything is possible with enough bandwidth with a major bottleneck likely to be the server's network card.
However, licensing is also a factor. The WinPE is a concurrency license so you can only do 100 at a time if you own 100 licenses. Nothing restricts you within the product but you need to be aware of Microsoft's licensing in this area.
