I really would like your expert input please.
I am fed up with reinstalling my Win XP Pro OS then setting it all up how I like it, then installing drivers, software etc. It takes me 2 days at least and I have a couple of PC's to do sometimes.
I bought a 60gig USB portable drive recently so I could install the OS and programs on it then when I need to do a reinstall on any of my PC's, hopefully, I just clone the stuff.
I partition my PC's so that the OS is on one partition and programs are on another.
Could you walkme through formatting PC and copying from portable to PC hard drive please?
I have Drive Image 7
What I can't figure is:
If I have a bare hard drive how can I get the PC to see the portable drive?
The hardware on each PC is different. Will that matter? I guess when I have the OS on and fire it up hardware will be recognized and drivers installed?
Thanks for your help
PC manufacturers must be doing this all the time I guess.
