Cloning A Hard Drive With Windows 7 Installed
My company clones hard drives for deploying our software (each software comes with a new computer and a new windows license). We clone the drive to avoid installing the mother board drivers, windows updates, sql server, etc etc each time. This worked great with Windows XP but with Windows 7 we get a boot error on the clone:
"Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem..."
Is there a way around this issue? We are a small company and it really is a pain to re-install everything for each new release we do.
Thanks in Advance,
