Imaging Issue (SSD)
We've bought a number of new PCs which we're imaging using Ghost over the Summer hols.
All PCs have been fine (other than a couple of DOAs) with one exception:
1. First we put on the Ghost image.
2. We configure the PC, which involves installing a handful of things, and two restarts (but not complete shutdowns).
3. The final bit of software we put on shuts the PC down, and we have to manually restart it.
4. On this problem PC it reverts back to Step 1 once we shut it down, as if the Ghost image has just been put on.
Iíve never seen anything like this before, because the machine doesnít revert to the Ghost image during the restarts.
Anyone seen this before? (Note, the machines have SSDs)
On reflection I wonder if this is the SSD cache. Amazingly the cache is surviving restarts, but is being flushed on a shut down. I'm amazed that all this changes are sitting their in the cache - SSDs must be weird!
