OS Standardization

By jmiller ·
I am trying to standardize everyone in the company to Windows 95, Version C. Is there a safe way to upgrade previous versions of Windows (A, B etc...) to version C? I hate to just put the Win95 CD in and run the setup over the top of the existing OS, I have had some experiences with that in the past.

That's the only way to upgrade the OS. By upgrading you are updating the Windows files to version C and retaining the registration of the applications. If you don't want to upgrade, then the only other option is to completely remove the older version of Win95 then install the rev. C of Win95. However, you will have to reinstall all applications if you completely remove the older version.

There is no way around this one..

with a clean system the same model as the rest...
create an image using ghost.

burn the image to cd.

and one by one reimage the systems..
its a pain in the *** but youve gotta do it.
from cd it will onlytake 5 minutes to redo each system..they all be standard and all systems will run better...just do it..

if you need more help or insite to this..email me (scripteaze@viawest.net) and ill call you with Dialpad
from dialpad.com its free long distance over you pc..better then all the rest..

If you have system management software such as MS SMS from Micosoft of ManageIT form CA, you can do it from that software.

You also can use Ghost from Symantec. but if want to use ghost, you have to make sure you will install a new clean system to the machines which have the same specifications.

good luck
