Jumpstart your Windows 7 and Office 2010 Deployment


In case you are starting to evaluate the deployment of Windows 7 and Office 2010 in your environment (especially now that Windows 2000 is no longer supported), I just found an excellent resource on TechNet:

Building a Technical Proof of Concept for the Joint Deployment of Windows 7 and Microsoft Office 2010

The site and content walk you through exploring the benefits, creating a business case, assessing hardware readiness, determining application comptibility, creating an image, and deploying a technical proof of concept.  There is also a downloadable Jumpstart kit that includes a preconfigured VHD that includes all of the tools you need… the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit, Application Compatibility Toolkit,  Windows 7, Office 2010, etc.  Make sure you run the VM on Hyper-V with connectivity to the internet so that the image can activate when it first loads.
