Make a Universal Image for any hardware, Acronis wont do by partition. Tags: Configuration Hardware Partition Windows 7 blackacidevil September 20, 2012 8:11:50 AM HI there, I want to make a universal image that I can install on a partition and it will load up with any hardware. Currently I am able to do this with Acronis 2012 True Image by backing up a drive and restoring the "drive" to any computer by selecting the "universal restore /something setting". The only problem is, on computers, I just want to restore the windows installation partition and files to, you cant get acronis to remove the drivers so it works on any system. Example : You either have to restore the whole drive (erase all data on partition via restore) then restore to physical drive by deleteing all partitions You cannot allocate space to a partition and restore to that drive or partition, The only way to do this is by having to erase, every bloody thing on the drive via acrnois anyone know of a beter way to use this image ive created and either remove the drivers in it, then image it again, then use it on lots of systems or any experience using better software?
