We want to use the Replace Method for our XP-W7 migration but do we have to create a computer association between the old and new machine name for every machine to be migrated (2500+)? If so, this does not appear to be practical because we dont know what the new machine name will be for every old machine to be migrated until we image machines with Windows 7, which is likely to be on the same day.
So, how can we use the Replace Method without creating computer associations please?
Thanks Kent. This HTA seems to be a very advanced solution, especially as we are new to SCCM. Is it supported by Microsoft if we need help or is it "use at your own risk"

We are testing a UDI solution, however, when we click Preview on the Refresh stage group we get the error Unable to launch wizard in preview mode OSDSetupWizard.exe was not found in the expected path. This is preventing us from checking that the changes we have made to the capture/restore settings will work or not. This error does not occur when we "Preview" the NewComputer stage group and we have checked OSDSetupWizard.exe does exist in \\<server>\MDT Toolkit\Tools\x64 and \\<server>\MDT Toolkit\Tools\x86.
1. How do we overcome this error to allow us to preview the Refresh stage group please?
2. Do we need to specify the DEPLOYMENTTYPE variable in the customsettings.ini and if so, do we need 3 different customsettings.ini files for each scenario (DEPLOYMENTTYPE=NewComputer, DEPLOYMENTTYPE=Refresh and DEPLOYMENTTYPE=Replace)?

Check if you have the same config file opened for editing on another computer.
