Speed of Installation on Factory Restore DVD or Image Restore for HP Computer

alu2f asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I am re-installing the DVD to re-image an entire computer with the HP System Recovery.  I was wondering if it would be faster to install the entire computer with the installation DVDs or the image that is located in the 2nd Partitition of the internal hard drive.  I would think it would be faster on the DVD re-imaging since it does not need to use the internal hard drive.  But, on the other hand, hard drives are faster.  Does anyone have a lot experience on installing 100's of these factory images or was on a roll-out team related to imaging hard drives?
