13537RE: [fhctech] Image DVD

      Our 2012 computer delivery from Salt Lake came with XP installed and the distribution disks from Dell for Windows 7. When I recently tried requesting a “Windows 7 image” from support, I was told that “there is no such thing” and “no ability to convert existing computers from XP to Windows 7.” The only thing I was told I could do is use the original Dell installation disks and build everything from scratch.


      I saved the relevant e-mail message if anyone is interested.

      Windows 7 is supported in FHC.  All new computers for FHC come with Windows 7 licenses and images.

      These days installing the Tivoli software gets you nearly everything you need. If you install the xp image you'll end up doing everything twice. If you have the skillset create your own image and install Tivoli and sophos post image.

      I've been out of the FHC tech support game for a while. I'm back in and need some guidance.
      In the past, FHC Support sent us a 2 disk DVD set called "Hardware Independent Image, Family History Center Desktop Image".
      We have some computers that were donated and I need to swap out some of the older PC's.
      Is there a newer DVD that has something newer than Windows XP on it, or should I just try use the old XP disks and apply updates?
      Any help would be appreciated.
