Another method to "automatically" restore an image (stored on a USB external HD) to an internal HD. No floppy, CD or USB flash drive is used. The external HD is the bootable medium. Boot from the external HD and either restore an image automatically or choose an image to restore from a menu. It's done with Image for DOS and it's for frequent restorers of course. Basically, make an IFD USB flash drive and create an IFW image of the flash drive partition. Restore the image to unallocated space on the USB external HD and select the Active option. Now you can boot from the USB external HD and it boots to IFD. If you get this far I can post the remaining instructions.
