"Pricey" Macrium Sysprep Alternative - Anybody used it?
Macrium Reflect Professional v5 has a function called ReDeploy.
Said to allow an image to be restored to a PC with different hardware.
Pretty neat if it works and you're willing to pay. $58.99 currently on the Macrium site.
I use Ghost 15 for imaging and though I've made it work fine, it's got its flaws.
Using a sysprepped image following Kari's tutorial, I've transferred a system to a different box.
Recently tried the free Macrium WinPE version provided by whs for a normal image/restore, and it did the same job as Ghost, and has a "nicer" interface.
So if I did buy new imaging software, I might tend toward Macrium.
My main reason for posting this is to make the forum aware of a possible solution to making an "old machine" image work on a new machine.
I actually make sysprepped system images as part of my imaging routine.
Most people don't do that, so this is a possible solution for those who want/need to load their system image on a new machine, but don't have a sysprepped image.
I say "possible" because it is a bit pricey, and I've never tried it out.
It's pretty new, and I haven't seen first-hand accounts of how it performs.
Hope it works well, because it's really a slick solution if it does.
Any volunteers to buy it and test it out?
