    Is there a way to use TI to create an image of a harddrive from one laptop then send that image to another laptop through a LAN but only using the boot CD menu and not through windows? Im pulling my hair out! and struggling to find the solution..... can it even be done? :S if not then damn why not as if u have a laptop with a clean harddrive on it would be sooo much easier to get it to interface with the LAN and pull an image down of a PC contanting an image.

    I can't seem to even see how to get the image onto multiple CDs so I can boot from it and copy the image by this method.....

    thanks for help

    Nope - you need something in between that can act as a file server. The Rescue CD can not do that.

    The closest you can get is to image laptop #1 onto its own harddisk. Reboot into Windows and share laptop #1's image.

    Boot laptop #2 with the CD, and restore from the image on laptop #1.
