Creating Images with Paragon Harddisk manager 2010 Professional
Posted on 2011-05-04
We are having problems restoring images in different computers.
This is the scenario, we have around 40 computers all of them are Windows XP Professional and all of them have almost the same kind of hardware (this computers where build, No Dell, No HP), so we were thinking about creating 2-3 images that will help us restore windows on all of them, or having 1 good image that we can use in all of them.
We have a few questions.
1.- whats the best way to check all the hardware in the computers to see whats compatible with the image? we are using CPU-Z, is there something else better than this?
2.- We know there is an option in Paragon called "P2P Adjust OS" does any one knows how to use this option, and how reliable is it?
3.- Is it possible to load all the drivers for all the different hardwares into 1 image, so the computer can look for the correct hardware?
This is how far we are.
We made an image on a computer, and restored that image on a different computer with the same hardware, relaying on CPU-Z and it worked.
We also made an image for a computer with this information:
(we got this info from CPU-Z)
CPU: Intel Pentium 4 530
Mainboard: Intel / D915GAG
Chipset: Intel / i915P/i915G
Memory:512 mb DDR PC3200 (200 MHz)
Graphics: Intel 82915G Express Chipset Family
and restored it in a different computer that had the same hardware except that this computer had two different video cards, and CPU-Z was only able to detect the Intel card and not the ATI card. The image didn't work on this computer, not sure if the video card had anything to do with this.
