    Multiple Hard Disk Image Burner?

    Hi,

    Our workshop spend much time copying images with Norton Ghost.
    Is there a hardware tool which allows multiple images to be burnt to multiple hard disks at the same time?

    Thanks,

    m.q.

    Not knowing how you use Norton Ghost at the present time, I suggest using it over the network, and broadcasting the image to many PCs. At work, we use this method, in a room separated from the rest of the network as we've notice significant slowdowns when attached to the corporate network.

    Hi,

    Thanks for that. I spoke to the guys and their challenge right now is in deploying the image to PCs remotely via the LAN/WAN.
    One problem you've highlighted is the traffic congestion, the other is how to remotely install on a blank system remotely.

    Currently they use PCAnywhere, but is there a "free" way of connecting to that remote PC's NIC and formatting his Win2k install & applying a WinXP image while at the same time not bringing the corporate LAN to a halt?!

    If you check out the materials in the DEPLOY folder on the Win2000 installation CD, you will find a lot of excellent information about network installations (RIS, remote installation services) exactly as you describe.

    Ok we'll try that. Although we won't be deploying Win2k, we'll be deploying WinXP Professional.
    I guess RIS will cover that also. Are there any good web-resources on this as well?

    Thanks,
