Hi,

We're looking to image several DL360 G7 with P410i controller, most of them installed with windows 2008 R2, and some with win 2008 x86.

When using Symantec System Recovery, the backup is going well, but the restore is finishing successfully, but yet the server fails to boot ("No system disk").

We've tried to run Bootset.exe with option 60 (Windows 2008 repair) from the win 2008 CD, but with no success.

Can any one please recommended:

1

Which Imaging product will be best for this configuration (Acronis, Ghost 15, System recovery, HD Clone etc..)

2

Since we've already backup all our servers with System Recovery (bootable), is there a way to utilize it?

Many thx in advance, the issue is urgent - it's a production environment which  needs to be packed and be shipped overseas in less than 1 day...

Bit late now, wasn't online yesterday. I don't use it but HP's imaging tool is Acronis re-badged as part of insight control.
