Cloning Windows Fundamentals
I'm looking at building a few windows fundamental PC's to get the last little bit of life out of them and need a way to clone them. I have tried WDS which we normally use but it gets stuck 3/4 of the way though the process. Does anyone know a good way of cloning fundamentals or getting it working on WDS. It gets stuck when you have to select a place for the image and upload it to the server. The buttons just don't do anything! It doesn't hang but I can't move forward as the browse button or connect button don't do anything. The only buttons that work at this point is the next and back buttons

We use windows fundamentals here on our oldest laptops, for Imaging I sysprep them and use norton ghost to copy the Image. Never tried WDS for WFLP though - maybe try using Free Ghost?

Thanks what free ghost would you be talking about? I can find free trials but not a free product

we use Clonezilla here sometimes, but mostly WDS.
Just a thought though withj your WDS image creation are you remembering to creat a local copy of the image before you advance.
Where is says image location put something like
It will then create a local copy of the image and upload it to the server.

Yeah that is what I would normally do but it doesn't let you type in the image location box (It's greyed out) and the browse button doesn't do anything

Could it be a drivers issue, needing thirdparty sata drivers installed so i can access the HDD correctly?

No I wouldn't think so... this is problems with windows fundamentals I think, and the machine is extremely old and not sata just your standard ide. On the screen before as well it asks for the volume to capture and you can select the drop down box and select the c:\ drive
