AOMEI Image Deploy Free Review
Although the program requires some technical understanding, it is easy to operate once you get the hang of it. The wizard-like interface makes the tool easier to use. A server needs to be created for batch deployment of the image.
In the first step, start the server by enabling the WinPE service using Image Deploy and then connect all the computers to the same local area network. Set the ‘Network Boot’ as the boot priority in the BIOS settings and you are ready to go.
What is WinPE
According to Microsoft,
Windows PE (WinPE) for Windows 10 is a small operating system used to install, deploy, and repair Windows 10 for desktop editions (Home, Pro, Enterprise, and Education), Windows Server 2016, and other Windows operating systems.
The server interface will display the number of devices currently connected and their IP addresses. Check the confirm checkbox and hit the next button to select the system image to be deployed to the connected devices. The system image should have been created by AOMEI Backupper and no other backup images are supported yet. Then select the computers you want to install the system image to and hit the ‘Start Deploy’ button.
The deployment will start and the computers would be installed with the system image simultaneously. The tool comes with real-time monitoring service that shows the deployment progress in percentage for each computer.
AOMEI Image Deploy comes in two variants, free and a paid one. If you want to deploy the image to 20 computers or less simultaneously similar and the hardware configuration of all the computers then the free version of the tool is good enough for you.
Overall, the tool is great and can shorten down your task and save time to a good extent. Installing a system image to multiple computers has never been that easy.
