    Which imaging software do you use?

    We used to use powerquest drive image back in the day but moved on to
    Symantec Ghost 7.5

    What do you use at your college/school and why did you choose that product?

    Does anyone use a newer version of Ghost?
    Thanks

    Used Ghost, then Deploy Centre (now part of Ghost), and now use RIS.

    @ kingswood , ghost and RIS and sysprep as far as I am aware.

    As for imaging there is also acronis :

    http://www.acronis.com/products/

    Not sure how much use that is but maybe something worth looking into ( Just wish it was free

    Re: Which imaging software do you use?

    At Kingswood we have historically used Ghost, but I have recently been using RIS to really good effect. This has been a Godsend really since ghost has let me down, and I haven't had the time to troubleshoot to any depth.

    Can't wait to see what XImage will be like in Vista- hopefully M$ have made some progress...

    I use Ghost (with sysprep) and RIS, but I cheat.

    I have changed the default boot image for RIS to the ghost RIS boot image.

    Simply press a key for PXE boot on a client with a ghost session setup and install. None of those nast network drivers to worry about and those stupid microsoft RIS options.

    No. You still have to faff around in sysprep scripts though, just the same as RIS really.
