I want to create a Master installation of a Debian based system, and to then clone it to new PC's as and when required.
As I'll only be doing this once or twice a month, my plan is:
1. Create a Master installation in a Virtual Machine which I can keep updated.
2. Boot new PC's using a live CD, partition the drives, set up RAID and then rsync the Master installation to the new PC.
3. Reboot the new PC and make any minor configuration changes.
Once the new PC's have left me for production use, they will not need to be upgraded save the usual apt-get updates.
My concerns is that my VM server has an AMD CPU, but the new PC's are likely to be Intel CPU's - will this cause a problem?
All the best,
