Laptops are nearly the same and each has its own XP Pro install CD due
to slightly different drivers used. I tried swapping XP Pro install
CDs but the laptop would not boot with the wrong install; mismatch
Yup. I took great pains to avoid any mismatch among mine.
Even within one make and model you can get at least 5
different models of mainboard. I settled on one and
when I bought more the first thing I insist on is getting
the exact model of mainboard I need. Will do the same
when I pick up 2 more in the next few months.
Having to stash a whole bunch of different boot images
was a nightmare I had experienced before.
I see that Macrium Reflect Pro says it can restore
to dissimilar hardware. Now THAT would be special!
Are you going to buy the Pro version and
try out that feature?
Macrium Reflect Free is all free $0.00 and can
be used where ever; no limitations.
Good! Usually the freebie versions like that
restrict you to one machine. Lots of free
software are free for one machine only.
Use them in a business or more than one
system and you're supposed to pay for them.
I didn't see any limitation as to number of machines
for cloning, but I found this:
Macrium Reflect™ contains functionality which enables us to verify
your compliance with this License, It does so by collecting and
passing to us the identity of each Computer on which you load or
attempt to load Macrium Reflect™.
Check their website for the additional features for the paid versions.
I do not need those features but would not mind paying the low price
for their software.
The Rescue disk is bootable and will allow recreating C: from a
partition or external USB drive Image.
And yes, I need to create the Image for each laptop.
BTW you are posting to multiple places and my MesNews complains about
that and will not let me post to that many places so I have to fiddle
with the Destination(Group). Your posts show up in other groups by themselves without my posts.
