How to Install Windows 10/8/7 on Multiple Computers at The Same Time | System Deployment Solution

Jean updated on Dec 11, 2020 to Backup Utility | How-to Articles

For ordinary computer users, it's not a big deal to fresh install a Windows operating system, or update the present Windows into a new version. On the contrary, for business owners who have a batch of computers to handle, what's the most efficient way to install Windows 10, for example, to multiple computers at the same time? Taking care of each machine, one by one is never the wise management method.

Besides, every time you install Windows OS on each PC, you'll have to run to the computer's location. It doesn't sound like a time- and effort-saving efficient plan, either. So is there a way to remotely deploy Windows 10/8/7 system image to several nearby computers? Can you update all computers OS simultaneously? Don't bother. To save time, energy, and money, you can rely on some professional system deployment tools.

Here in the following, you will learn how to set up, install, and configure Windows 10 operating system on new PCs, workstations, and servers with EaseUS system backup software and system deployment tool.

Part 1. Prepare for installing OS on several PCs at the same time

Before you start planting Windows 10/8/7 on side-by-side computers all at once, you must do three preparation jobs as below.

Step 1. Setup or gain a Microsoft DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) server on your network;

Step 2. Ensure that all computers which need to install or upgrade to new Windows OS are under the same LAN.

Step 3. Create a full system backup image with EaseUS Todo Backup and put the image on a network where you can access it from the master PC. (Detailed in Part 2)
