Office Upgrade to Windows Vista (Part 2)

Out of the box and initial setup:

Unpacked the systems and went through their initial setup. I have to say I don’t understand the logic behind the amount of plastic used to ship computers. Why is it necessary to put the entire monitor cable, connected to the monitor, in a plastic sleeve with twist ties down the entire length? Wouldn’t it be just as easy to just fold the cord into a small plastic bag or even better, just leave off the plastic all together? It’s not like there’s a whole lot in the box that’s going to rub against it and leave marks on the black power cable that no one is going to see!

Other than the excitement of removing a couple hundred plastic bags, nothing major for the initial setup. Went through the Windows updates to get the systems up to current updates and ready to go. Still to do today will be to double check the server that all required updates are in place for SBS2003 to allow Vista systems to join the domain.

Tomorrow will be adding the systems to the domain and making sure users have access to all required applications as well as doing a test run of upgrading the QuickBooks data from the old 2005 version to 2008 on the new systems.
