OK, Question is:
What is the easiest way to transfer a Desktop OS build to a laptop, make it boot and keep all the settings and updates I have done on that build?
I have a baseline built on a Desktop PC with all the updates and security setting but need to transfer that baseline to a laptop so I don’t have to rebuild the baseline from scratch for the laptop (It’s a lot of work).
I can use the “repair” option on the EX_SP2 OS CD on that build when I want it to boot on the laptop but I loose the updates and some of my security settings and it needs to be rebuilt again anyways.
The original build was for Dell Optiplex’s (GX270, GX620, GX620, GX745 and GX755). It works fine when transferring between these desk tops but craps out on any laptop. When I get the repair done on one laptop model it won’t work on a different model laptop either and I have about 8 different models of laptop. This will be a lot of unneeded work just to baseline these laptops.
Can someone save me some time? I don't want to build 14 baselines for 14 different machines :(
