"Zapping" style restore...
Posted on 1998-06-04
We're trying to find a way to copy a Hard Drive to CD-ROM and make it a Restore type disk without Window 95-B's "OEM" packing program. When we build a PC, we want to be able to put a hard drive on a test bed, put the files on it via CD and then be able to put it in the new PC and BOOM it works ... no install... and later we can make it a good restore disk but right now, we just want to be able to "zap" the drive and go (to save hours of installing). Does anyone know of a good program or way of going about doing this?
NOTE:(When we throw it to CD, and copy it back, the file attributes are all set to Read Only creating a horrible problem with an unreliable quick fix of removing Read Only but problems still come about.)
NOTE: (We usually build the same machine, so if we change configuration we'll probablly make another disk so there's no worry about "machine dependant" hardware)
Thanks in advance with any help that can be issued but the points go to the guy/gal that can help with a quick and VERY reliable solution.
