OEM Image Factory Restore?

Postby primem0ver » Tue May 01, 2018 1:46 pm

I am not sure if I should put this in the BootIt or image forum since it involves both. My basic question is it possible to integrate Image into bootit? I am installing multiple OEM OS's on one machine and would like to provide an easy way to restore a specific OS's partition from within BootIt (think quick, no non-sense factory reset of specific OS and original software without having to boot into the OS). If this isn't a feature already, it would be a nice addition.

primem0ver,

No worries. Imaging is already present in BootIt BM.

Just to clarify and expand, certainly not disagree, assuming the proper options are selected when creating the BootIt BM boot media, Image for DOS (IFD) will be able to be invoked from BootIt BM, but it will probably be faster to boot and use Image for Linux (IFL).

That is definitely the case here. IfL is about 5 times faster than
IfD.
