Upgrading Win 7 Pro to Win 10 and imaging question.

By millhouselives ·
Hi,

So I am I.T admin for small company. (15 desktops and 1 physical server and two virtual servers plus 2 copiers).All are Win 7 Pro..all are Lenovo desktops. Two things are happening. 1) We need to move to Windows 10 Pro soon and 2) Most of the desktops also need to be replaced. Planning begins now and would like all done by end of year.

So, my question. Do i upgrade to Win 10 on the current desktops and than use a "barebones' imaging product to create an restore image that can be used on the new desktops that will be ordered? Looking for the least painful way to do this. Most are running also Microsoft Office 2010, a couple 2013 and two 2016. There is also a "maybe" plan to move toward Office 365 just to add even more fun to the mix!

Thank you,
Steve

Imaging workstations

Thank you for your reply. I understand what you say, but each of the 15 computers at this location have customized user installed applications. So one system image will not will not work for all the different computers. Each one will have to have their own "system image" created and then restored to a new computer. Please note my question again considering this information.

That is the way I would do things there

Though it's not ideal but if it's what you have to work with it's the best way to do things.
