    Hi all.
    I wanted to know if it's possibly to create a boot up disc with windows and office and other programs like adobe so that it installs it after a another.
    So that there is no hassle in changing discs everytime.

    Why not just make an image of a partition with whatever you want already installed?

    Well, I'm fairly certain that there is a way to slipstream apps into an install disc, but I'm not 100% sure of it. Personally, I would create boot disc with some sort of imaging software on it and keep a drive image on a flash-drive.

    edit: Here you go

    You could try nLite for XP or vLite for vista

    nLite doesn't really do apps, according to the FAQ

    Anyways, the info on unattended installation here should help.

    Edit: BTW, for large-scale OS deployment, lots of companies use SCCM, but that might be a bit more than you need lol

    Either unattended or just write a bat file for the installation process so its one click install.

    Not sure how well it works, I have never used it, but worth a try anyway.
