Delete partiions, create new one and then format whole HDD
today I have had a complete waste of a day.
I have had imaging issues and the only way I can get the process working is too boot to XP cd, delete all the partitions, create a new partition and then fully format this partition. After doing this my image of a 40gb partition will drop onto the machine without an issue. The machines have the RMRBOOT util installed and with this on a machine, the process falls apart.
I am using CloneZilla of which I have used loads of times before without issue and I have made the amendments so that the image file can be restored do different partitions but it just isn't working unless I for the delpart, create part and format tasks.
Is the a quicker way to do this without using the XP cd?
The whole disk has to be formatted to remove the RMRBOOT util for the image to work on a station.
Cheers and I hope this makes sense.
