Thank you for this response. I am looking into getting Volume licenses. If it is viable for the company I will be moving forward with FOG Project.

I’m going to first start out like a jerk, but hopefully towards the end you’ll get something out of this post. First of all your request is not inline with the FOG Project charter. FOG doesn’t really care about how your reference image is setup or configured. FOG only moves the contents of the disk from the source location to the target location. As long as the source and destination locations match exactly that is all that FOG cares about.
Thanks for the information. I appreciate the guidance. I will use the resources provided to move forward
Does your organization have Volume Licenses of Windows 10?
No, the serial numbers should be tied to BIOS
Are all the laptops using the same “version” of Windows 10? (I.E. Windows 10 Enterprise, Windows 10 Pro)
They are all Windows 10 Pro
How many laptops are you planning to image?
It looks to be about 25
Is the imaging going to be happening at a central location?
Response from my boss: “we prefer a central location, you can start hosting the images on the FOG server first and we can move them to NAS.”
Are these going to be required to Join a Domain? (This can be handled using FOG Client or unattend setups).
Response from my boss: "we are not using a domain controller but for authentication purposes Google or Microsoft can be used "
Where should I begin?
Thank you for the help again. Feel free to be as direct as you want.
Complete Novice Looking For Assistance
I have been tasked to implement FOG Project for easy deployment of laptop images for the company I work for. I am a complete novice and only familiar with the concept of imaging. I was hoping someone could hold my hand through the process as there are some specifics that are even further out of my range such as virtual machines and repositories.
These are the specifics my boss roughly told me:
- He wants an image for each model of laptop we have (Does the model of the laptop matter or just the operating system?
- He wants the project to be hosted on a NAS or virtual Ubuntu machine (not exactly clear on this)
- Wants applications to be updated on occasion, maybe quarterly. So either updated in the image itself or in some kind of repository
These are the apps he wants on the image or repository:
Adobe Reader DC
Drive File Stream
I am asking for a lot and I appreciate any and all help.
