Session 1: Can We Bust This Myth? “It’s impossible to upgrade a Windows XP computer to Windows 7″

Can we bust this myth in 75 minutes or less? Join us and see for yourself!


Session 2: Free Quick and Dirty Deployment Tools

If you’re a tech of action and want to move now this session will show you how to get your hand dirty with free Microsoft deployment tools.

Planning: When planning your migration to Microsoft Windows 7 & Office 2010, specific knowledge about each PC on the network and its readiness for migration is essential. Here we will show you the Microsoft Assessment and Planning (MAP) Toolkit which gathers essential infrastructure information to answer the question “Are my PCs ready for Windows 7 & Office 2010?”

Office 2010 Customization: After you create a network installation point, but before you install Office 2010, you can use the Office Customization Tool (OCT) to create a Setup customization file which enables unattended custom installations.

Quick and Dirty Imaging: In this section we detail how to create and use the ultimate technician deployment tool. That’s right the bootable USB drive with imaging tools. These tools enable you to sit at a machine and take or deploy an image at will.


Session 3: Automate your Windows 7 deployment using the MDT 2010

You don’t have a handful of machines to deploy, you have hundreds – and you want to automate the process. The Microsoft Deployment Toolkit offers a configuration database that enables methodological automation of deployment configurations, allowing you to automatically assign properties based on target computer locations, makes and models, plus computer values. Take a deeper look at this MDT 2010 capability and learn how it can simplify your organization’s deployments.
