Hostname changing and drive's letter after deployment



  • Thanks guys for your quick responses!

    @Tom-Elliott

    Does it works with windows XP?
    80% of our PCs are xp.

    I will say though that I’ve deployed images on hardware 6+ years old (Win7 x64 compatible) and use the FOG client. It is extremely light weight and uses little to no resources.

    Our Pcs are 9+ years old on windows xp, they will soon fall into coma ahah

    @RLane Not totally correct.

    FOG, during image deployment, will change the hostname after the image process is complete but before the system reboots. It does this by finding the registry keys to run through.



  • Within sysprep and your unattend.xml file you can create a PS batch script to change the hostname. Only problem is this will require manual input rather than have FOG do it automatically.

    Just my 2c.
