Hello. I have a W2K workstation (W/S) that I've been asked to work with as a favor. This W/S is part of a 36 W/S install in an office - all hardware is the same - HP desktops. When a W/S goes south, it's usually a HDD. New HDD is purchased and installed. But the OEM supplied image is years old (2001 I think) Question: can we build a new W/S, completely update it and use that new image on subsequent repaired W/Ss? I think we can. So I took a virgin W/S, used the OEM image, got it all up to date and prep'd an updated imag with TI. The OEM image will fit on one CD, mine won't because of the size I had to use DVD. I then took the image (.tib) and tranferred it over to another system for burning purposes. I used an ISO utility to sweep off TI and placed the .tib under the root of the DVD and burned. I then took that result and tried to apply the image to an older spare HP machine I have kicking around because I wanted to test and try to ensure it was bulletproofed. After the TI imaging goes through beautifully (no errors), I reboot the test from HDD. Am getting a 7B stop, INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE even though as it's coming up, I clearly see that W2K is in fact started. It just shows for a brief moment, then BSODs. On the test bed system, since it had a copy of XP Home installed, I used Kill Disk 5.0 to wipe the drive clean and delete the active partition so I could start as though it was a "factory fresh" disk. Question: Shouldn't this image be able to be applied this way? Or, is it so hardware precise and dependent that the only hardware it's going to fly on is the hardware that it emanated from? Was using Kill-Disk the wrong thing to do?
