R: dd vs windows...



Hi,

I wonder what is the copy for. If you need a backup copy for disaster-like
recovery you might want to consider ASR function available within the
NtBackup utility.

If you want to clone the machine, well, then you might consider sysprep
utility or some 3rd party utility, since that each time you install a
computer device you also need to generate a Security ID (SID) for that
device, of course w/o touching the licensing issues (each time you want to
install an OEM version of the OS you should consider using the OEM builder
utilities or similar programs).

Those are my 10cents :)

Sincerely

En3pY

Hi all,
I have a windows xp machine that I want to take a binary image of. Can I
boot into knoppix on this same machine and use it to dump the binary onto a
dvd/cd? I'm guessing this would depend on whether I could get support for my
dvd writer.
