    Hello ,
    I have a question for you.
    If it was already answered please give a link because i didnt find it :D.
    Well here it goes :
    I just received at work 15 new computeres (same all).
    I installed one and then made a full backup of it ->3.2GB .
    What i wanted to do is :
    I wanted to have a DVD with Boot option and on that same DVD to have the *.tib file so i can just put the new dvd in the rest of the computers and install all of them like this.
    The problem is that i didnt find the option in Acronis True Image Enterprise Server 9.1 from where i can do this.
    If there is a turorial pls tell me where.
    Thank you very much.

    Version 10 makes it easier and will let you use a dvd disc. So if your image is 3.2Gb, it will work with one dvd disc.
    It's under Tools/Options/Default Backup Options/Media Components.

    One more question here...As i told u i already made the 3.2 gb *.tib file
    The problem that BOOT DVD can only support 1.9 gb.(only the UDF dvd supports larger files but in Nero it doesnt have the BOOT options..)
    Is there a way to just resize the 3.2 gb tib file in 2 files of 1.6 gb ? whitout having to "deploy" it first to some drives , and then recreate it ?
    Many thanks

    I don't know of any, other than re-doing the backup and splitting it. I actually do not use a boot dvd with backup image on it - just passing along what I read here. Would a portable usb drive be an option for your purpose?
