Using ImageX for disk to Disk
Posted on 2011-09-22
I am just starting to use imageX to make images of my new Windows 7 computers.
I used to use Ghost but I think ImageX maybe a better solution and also save me the ghost license cost.
Right now what i have done is created a .WIM image file , botted WinPE and connected to a network drive that has my WIN7.WIM file.
I then used DiskPart to
1. Select the disk
3.Create a partition
4.select the partion
5.format the partition (ntfs)
6.assign drive letter
7. set it active
Then i have to apply the image using ImageX
Then I change to the windows \ system32 and run BCDBOOT on the windows directory
Works fine - just a lot of steps
Using Ghost I used to just click Local disk from image - choose the defaults and i'm ready to go 8 minutes later.
I guess my question is - how do i streamline this process ?
OR Can I create an Image of a disk instead of just a partion - using ImageX ?
Any help is appreciated
