net-runna Vista Preparation Tool

I haven't had the joy of trying to create an 'image' of Vista for distribution within my organization yet... but the day is coming.

One thing I know so far is that the Vista boot record is "new" so you will no longer be able to use your old/trusty Ghost 8 and such without 'extra' work.

The tool below claims to make it easier, however, again i have not tested it yet. I'll let you know when I get there.

net-runna Vista Preparation Tool: "This utility will prepare your Windows Vista installation so that imaging tools such as net-runna Enterprise will be able to clone it. After using the Preparation tool on a Vista system, it should remain 'cloneable' from that point onwards."

net runna vista works great!

I spent two days mucking through hundred of pages of documents for microsoft windows vista WinPE and ImageX to name a few. Nothing but a buch of stupid time wasting every so slow pointless microsoft tools like the company itself.

I installed net runna vista and created the master image, restored it and BOOM! no more winload.exe errors baby!

Need I mention no more childish bcdedit tricks. No more hunting for the proper version of ghost for vista tricks. And the list goes one. Microsoft as usual deliberately try to force users in using bloated micosoft tools or buy new third party tools just for a user to accomplish the very same task which prior to the new forcing of microsoft were completed with great ease and no headaches. Windows AIK is perfect example of endless bloat and complexity of dumb dumb soft. Place a FDA approved sign outside of the windows at one dumb dumb way street and what unsurprised looks on customer's faces when they see a D+ rating.
