Installation

isginf offers fully managed installation of Windows on desktop and laptop computers. Installations are deployed automatically over the network. ITCs can request an installation through our installation request form.

Supported Hardware

In general we are able to install Windows on all 64 bit platforms as long as drivers for all components are available.

Software

A lot of software is already packaged and can be installed on a computer automatically even after installation. ITCs can define a standard software set for their group.

Licensing

The software licensing for the operating system and all software installed via the package deployment system is handled by isginf.

Updates

The operating system as well as all software installed via the package deployment system is automatically updated.
