(Whiteboard: [reit-win8])

We decided that we need 100 win8 test machines to be able to keep up.

Before we go ahead and order all of these we need the a-team to sign off in bug 780024.

I believe some graphic cards were ordered in bug 760440 and one was shipped back from Toronto (I can't recall which bug but I made a comment).
Assignee: server-ops-releng → arich
We cannot move forward on this order for hardware until we have sign-off on the bug above 780024.
Once signoff is given by hwine/joduinn, we will be ordering:

25  iX-22X4 Multi-Node HPC Server 

100 EVGA 01G-P3-1430-LR GeForce GT 430 (Fermi) 1GB 128-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

100 EVGA GeForce 210 Low Profile Bracket
Signoff was given in bug 780024, starting the ordering process.
We are waiting for RelEng to review the order and provide approval to move forward.
Whiteboard: [reit-win8]
Did we get the required approval from releng ? Whats the current status ?
I just got back from holidays.

Can I assume that signoff from comment 3 is what you wanted; no?

I will let hwine backup what I say (since I could be disoriented or missing something) or correct me.
Status update for all: The approval to purchase has not been given. IT & RelEng are working to ensure this is the correct platform. We do not expect that work to complete for several weeks, at which time this bug will be updated with the decision.
Depends on: 758624
at the moment I am stuck at pushing the win8 image out with MDT. The process seems to work up until the very end where it locks the machine up completely. Working on troubleshooting these issues so we can confirm that this system will work for us.
Sorry for the noise, comment 8 was meant for a different bug.
quotes given to mrz and awaiting writeup by bob/asa then approval by gary.
Removing bug 755772 from blocking bugs since it does not block the builds per say.

bug 731280 nevertheless blocks bug 755772.
