Need Image backup capability for Win XP Machine

I want to be able to perform an "image backup" of a Win XP system such that I can use the image to restore machines with the same hardware configuration to enable me to quickly build a machine configured as I need it. In the past I have used GhostCast Server to do what I want but I am at a new firm now and we do not have the same software package.

Based on what I am seeing, I get the impression from the Symantec site that it costs about $ 1,000.00 to get GhostCast Server that I am looking for and am wondering if I have other options.

There is plenty of software you can use for that. Bootit-ng is one of the best, not expensive, and you can also use it to manipulate partitions.

Another good product is shadowcopy of storagecraft, which also allows you to restore to dissimilar hardware.

And then of course there are quite a few opensource/free products, often based on linux, like partimage, DD, G4U, Driveimage XML....

I use Acronis at work.

They have several solutions ranging from a simple home solution up to a complete enterprise server.

Pricing is pretty reasonable and their solutions have worked great for me.

Ghostcast just comes with Ghost Solution Suite you do have to pay for clients connecting but it's under $50.00 per client.  In our organisation it costs $14.00 per client, but you can usually find this out from a Symantec Distributor.

Cheers
