Cloning the Master Computer to a File on the Shared Folder

Download the most recent RedoBackup .iso file and burn it to a CD. You will need to burn the iso file with a CD burning program for iso files such as Img Burn (free). Install Img Burn then right click on the RedoBackup iso file to burn.

Insert the RedoBackup CD, start the computer and watch the screen for a message that says "Press any key to boot from CD". Press a key.

If you don't see that message, change the boot order to boot from the CD first in BIOS.

If you haven't done this before, you can change your system's boot order in the BIOS. To do this, restart your computer and before the splash screen displays press whichever key you are told. Might be F2, F1, F12 ? to enter Setup or BIOS. In the Boot section you should then be able to adjust the settings labeled Boot Order, Boot Device Priority or another variation on this wording. Make sure that your CD/DVD drive is set to be your first boot device and then you should be able to boot from a CD.

Using RedoBackup to Clone to the Shared Folder.

1. When RedoBackup starts, make sure you are online. You must have online access in order to contact the computer with the shared folder and save the cloned master computer file there. If RedoBackup does not have the network drivers for your network card, you will not have access. Go to their site and make sure you have the latest version. If you cannot get online, you will only be able to clone using the USB method. Are there work arounds? Sure, try connecting a different network card, possibly an external usb network adapter.
