Other way is
If the pcs are on network you can have RIS or WDS setup. Requirement for clients is they should have network bootable NIC

it is very simple. just install the os and all the drivers in one system and make a ghost image using norton ghost and restore it in remaining 49 systems. restoring a ghost takes 5-6 mins while os and drivers will take more than one hour for each.

First I install OS in one machine & default software if required than i will  create one Ghost Image of that machine than I will make 49 copies of that Ghost Image DVD & run on all ramain PC, but for this you should be have ghost software & knowledge of ghost( how to make Ghost bootable DVD/CD & how to use that ) this is a 1 solution  another is given below -

Installing over Network

Here You have to build one distribution server & copy OS's i386 on Distribution Server  & install the network client  - this software allows the target computer to connect to distribution server .

The setup programme copies installation files to target computer & creates set up boot disk.  After setup copy installation files  you  start the installation  from  set up  boot disk.

I would install opreting system in 50 PC support of a remote installation or ghost installtion. When we use the remote installation first we will see which PC we are using in network then we will see all the network card PXI Bootable.

Two ways.

1. If there is no network connectivity, try to get a image from a existing machine usiong any Ghost application, and install the disk to another machine.

2. If there is network, configure a windows server machine with AD, DHCP, DNS then use Remote installation service.

If all PC are connected to network switch, then make a software called "CLONEZELLA" to run in a particular pc which is connected to server in the organization. With that software you can install OS in any no of PCs. But condition is that all PC need to connect network switch and atleast one PC connected to Server.

WDS is better because it has Multicast Cast Relay option and this option only works when 50 PCs are using same image. It will reduce traffic on the network.
