I had the pleasure of attending multiple courses of yours at MMS 2010 and I’d like to ask and perhaps offer you some business. My firm is looking for an OSD solution for users over the internet. I know that this is unsupported with ConfigMgr. However, could a custom MDT type website be configured to accomplish this? Any ideas, no matter how crazy would probably be better than thousands of USB sticks. Thanks in advance.
