Corporate client provisioning

As usual, when holidays come, I have the time to do whatever I missed in the year. Finally our corporate PC full provisioning system has reached the production state! It has taken me some hours to resolve many issues about WMP11 deployment and I had to deal with a time-consuming MSI repackaging, but now I can press F12 after the POST on a PC, write down my domain credentials and wait for the RIS (Remote Installation Service) by Windows Server 2003 and the software distribution feature by Intellimirror doing the work for me. When I come back (about 1 hour later), the client is setup, all corporate policies have been enforced, all programs have been deployed and patches applied: I only have to log on and simply start using my new PC… everyone working with a PC at business should have that at Christmas! 😀
