We purchased 200 generic machines without operating systems. We need them to boot to the network and install an image of Windows 7. What is the best way to do this? Can it be done with Windows services?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Microsoft has a few walkthroughs on how to set up a Image and how to distribute it over many computers either using a boot media or windows configuration set. Here a couple links to help out.

Hope this helps.
