I would suggest you buy once off support from one of Symantec Partners, then get them to give you training while they setup the solution.

....else get started with the guide below and come back with problems encountered hopefully we can get it working.

Dear All,

the problem i am facing is that i am unable to store the image in the network .
2nd when i am trying to store windows 7 image there i have to select 2 drives i.e. C Drive & by default the MBR which contains 100 mb file. but when restoring i can only select one drive only. i cannot select two together. maybe the way i am doing is not correct. tried a lot but failing.

As far as writing to the NAS, what kind of error are you getting? Can you UNC path to the share you are trying to write to? Have you tried it by IP instead of name? In regards to the 100MB drive, this is usually just a diagnostic partition. You would only need to restore to the C: drive. The diagnostic partition is placed there either by the computer OEM or Windows 7 and 8.

Dear All,

The issue has been solved. the method that i applied in the beginning was totally wrong. 1st i need to install the System Recovery application to  that particular computer from where i need to take the iamge of the C drive only. then if i need to store the image in the newtork i have to map the folder. then start taking the image of the drive & store it to the newtork folder or external hdd.

for restoring clean the hdd by running the command in the command prompt. show the path where image file is stored & restore. restart the computer. we will get the same old windows.

I need to close this issue. please guide me how to do it.
regards,

JCT
