Aloha all,

I am looking for software to image 5 computers for a internet cafe. Time to time these computers get virues, and I would like to be able to boot from dvd to restore each computer. eg (each computer will have a dvd)

What is the best software to use?

I have used clonevilla, however if i have to have the customer do it, it may be too hard. Is there anything else that would work that is strait forward?

Thanks!

Plus 1 for Acronis, if you buy the boxed version it comes with a bootable disk, if you get the download you create your own after instalation.

I hope this will help. It seems that someone else was asking for that few years back. Nevertheless, technically it should still work.

Why not use the sysprep tool built in? Also now available is MDT 2010 (Microsoft Deployment Tool) which will help you create images and automate the OS and application installations, data migration, and desktop configuration process. To learn more, please go here: http://bit.ly/GZnEY
