How to take image of hard drive and replicate it on the other machines with different sized partitions
Posted on 2004-09-02
I have 40 preinstalled (with XP) HP Machines all of similar configuration.
I formated and reinstalled with Xp and few licensed softwares on a machine with single partition of 40Gb. I faced lot of problems in installing the Rational Rose RT and in integrating it with Tornado. And so i want to take the image of this hard drive and replicate this on the rest.
And now how to take the image of this drive bcos it just has only one partition. Is there any way to take the image of that drive from a network computer.
The rest 39 Machines have different sized partitions.
Like one machine has C: 10Gb, D:10Gb, E:10Gb, F:7Gb. And another machine has someother partitions.
and now if there is a way to take the image of that 40Gb drive then is there a way to replicate it on the machines with different sized partitions.
PS: It is not possible to take the hard drive out, as i dont want to break the warranty.
