I manage many public computing labs at Texas Tech University. We have imaging down to a fine art on the PC. We have 1 MAC lab with Imac G5’s running 10.4.8. I have never imaged this lab. By the way, when I use the term “Image” I mean to have a server with a complete image of a computer hard drive that is already set up with all the latest programs and updates. So, I can transfer this image to a computer with a blank hard drive and when the image transfer is done, the new computer has an OS with all of our programs already installed, updated and ready to be used.
My question is will DropDMG be able to create an image of a MAC that is all updated and ready to go and allow me to put that image on a laptop and travel around to all of our MAC’s, hook them together via firewire, then transfer the new image and be done with it?
