Windows 7: Using Windows 7 Machine To Push OS Image To Vista Machines

Using Windows 7 Machine To Push OS Image To Vista Machines


I have a large number of Vista laptops that need to be reimaged with Windows 7 OS. I have a bulk license for the OS.

I want to use a Windows 7 laptop and a switch to set up a small network and work station in order to push the OS from to 10 Vista machines at a time.

Is this possible? If so, can someone point me in the right direction?
