Cloning a Computer
A WATCHOUT system typically uses multiple, identical playback computers. Performing the above trouble-shooting and tuning operations on multiple computers is tedious. An alternative is to get one display computer working properly, and then clone its hard disk to the others. This, of course, assumes that they all have the same hardware configuration.
A fast and convenient method for cloning the hard disk is to use True Image, from Acronis, for example.
IMPORTANT: While the cloning procedure copies everything on the hard drive, it does not automatically perform any firmware (BIOS) or similar upgrade. You may need to perform any motherboard upgrades manually after cloning the disk.
