Clone Windows 7
Posted on 2011-10-29
I wish to make a clone of a disk running Windows 7. I need to make an image for a client who will be upgrading several machines in the next year, so I need to create an image that has all theri software in place.
I tried a couple times back in its early days to clone Vista (using Acronis True Image and Apricorn EZ Gig). Neither software worked. In fact, not only did I not get a clone that booted, but it ruined the image on the host drive as well. So neither drive would boot. All the files were there, but it was no longer bootable.
I bought Acronis True Image 2012 just now, but tech Support is unavailable until Monday. I’d like to get this done this weekend (I have 2 to image right away).
Can anyone tell me if Acronis TrueImage 2012 will successfully clone Windows y? I just spent several hours getting all the updates, loading all their software and printers, etc. and I don’t want to have to do it all again, so I’d rather not experiment with that disk.
Anyone have any experience in this area?
