Windows 7: Making a server for cloning a computer on many machines

A local domain running in Windows Server OS is practical even in relatively small networks. You can for instance login with any domain account to any of the joined machines, without separately setting up that account on each PC. This adds to security; each user profile is stored on server, user has access to all integrated apps on any machine. Applications and updates can be installed from server, and so on.

Centralized group policies is another added security feature; set up group policies on server and they are applied to all domain users on all machines.

Thank you so much for your help!
the machine I captured is full of games that is why the size of the image is HUGE
I watched the tutorials and made an AD successfully but i found out that doing it from my external hard-disk is faster then the server
So I finished around 7 machines and connected them to the domain successfully. Doing the rest slowly one by one.

Thank you again for those tutorials.

I must be honest with you: Your 170 GB image you want to deploy to over 20 machines being full of games, there's no way I am going to believe you that's not piracy. I know no games that will sell "volume licenses", allowing this.

I am ashamed and disappointed for assisting piracy.

I was talking about windows volume license!

Before calling others criminals if you knew a little about games you would also know that gaming is done through clients like steam or origin nowadays and multiplayer doesn't work without purchasing the game. I am ashamed for taking assistance from someone like you!

you can send me a ticket on my paypal and get some money for your technical support instead of flaming me for the little help you gave me.

There's no way you 170 GB image deployed to over 20 computers is legit. Please do not even try to convince me.
