Standard Operating Enviroment Design Guide

By toyospares ·
Does any one know if a guide exists to designing a Standard Operating Enviroment (SOE) for Windows XP?

An overview of what I need to consider etc.

What's the difference between a high level design and a detailed design?

It truly depends on what your build of Windows XP looks like as to what the answer is.

What exactly is the goal of this document?

Sorry, I may not have been clear enough.
I have been asked to design an Standard Operating Environment for a company based on a Win XP desktop, MS Office apps etc.etc.

What I was after was a design guide to give me some ideas on what I need to consider.

i.e. BIOS settings, partition sizes, file system type, system settings, display settings, desktop settings, IE settings, GPO settings, drive mappings, TCP/IP settings etc. etc.

SOE depends upon Local Environment

by davidwjohnson7738 In reply to

Bios settings, system settings, display settings will depend upon the actual hardware available.

Drive mappings, GPO settings depend upon your network and security guidelines.

There is really no cut and dried solution.. only guidelines to help create a custom one.
