Thought I would give you all an update;) Monday I bought the 2 TB Western Digital NAS and found out that WD Drive Image will not work for me because it requires one of the drives in each PC to be WD:(
So I went loooking around and found a program called PE builder that has a plugin that makes drive images. PEbuilder makes a bootable CD/DVD that runs Windows XT under a Linux shell. It boots the pc under Linux I think then has a stripped version of Windows XP. Then you run the imaging plugin to image to another partition, hard drive or over your network:cool: It requires you to have a Valid copy of Windows to make the bootable CD/DVD
It works on one of my 4 PC’s perfectly but on three it does not:sad: The reason is because there are no network drivers installed for my on board NICs. So then I found a program called nLite that allows you to modify your Windows CD to add drivers, remove unwanted features, make it autoinstalling and more. See it here.
Both of these programs are free to non commercial, private users:iagree:
I’ve been trying for two days to get the drivers installed for my Asys P5KPl-CM system board:Z
The procudure I’m following is to use nLite to add the drivers then burn a modified XP disk. Then run PEbuilder to make a bootable CD that runs windows. When working it loads network drivers and allows you to run the imaging program:clap:
That’s where I am. Anyone used nLite to add drivers:confused:
