  • Create a recovery partition

    Does anyone have regular sucess in creating a recovery partition (bootable)? I'm only looking for actual results, and the software they have used.

    What version and edition of Windows are you looking for? What products have you tried? Keep in mind that most OEM installations of Windows already have some form of recovery partition.

      I'm using XP (thought it was in my signature) and I have ghost 14, ghost corporate edition, and acronis, but I need a simple repeatble process.
      I would like to do many of the office computers so I don't loos so many settings.

        It is in your signature yes, but we would have to make an assumption as to whether or not that is the system you are referring to.

        Since you have Ghost, I would suggest that you use this and store images on the server, rather than creating recovery partitions on each machine - after all, chances are you're only going to want to restore a machine after its hard drive fails.

        Or use RIS/WDS?

          I don't have that kind of storage space on the server. I don't want to do all of them, but some of the crucial machines, I do. A partition and possibly a bootable cd/dvd. I also have field computers that don't run off the server. I don't need other options, just results of others that have sucess doing this.
