    Here is what I want to be able to do.

    My department has several identical PC’s. I want to be able to image one PC and save that image to a network share. Then I want to be able to go to one of the PC’s in that department that has problems, load a bootable CD and have that CD be able to get the image from the share and restore that (or any other) PC in the department.

    Is there a product out there that will do this? If so, which one?

    Thanks
    Mike

    Whilst there is probably a version of True Image that does what Mike requires, it might be better if this general enquiry was moved over to the Software & Services section at this point in time.

    I think the Acronis True Image Enterprise Server (Disk Clone module) can meet your needs

    I believe the hardware of each computer has to be identical.

    if the computers have different hardware configs, make sure to get the Acronis Universal Restore plugin for ATI Enterprise Server or Workstation (whichever u decide on)

    Either that or takes some time to use sysprep. Same old dilemma: money vs convenience.
