Hello,

Is it possible to clone an XP partition from an OS X partition???

HARDWARE:
Mac Mini - 2 partitions done withDisk Utility (one in HTFS+ and one in FAT 32)
RAM - 2 Gb
CPU - 2.26 GHz core 2 Duo

OERATING SYSTEMS:
1) partition 1 - Mac OS X (10.6.8 v1.1) - installed from DVD with basic features
2) partition 2 - Win XP PRO (SP3) - installed from DeployStudio

THE MISSION:
After deploying XP, we need lots of time configuring the system (that is the issue).
Therefore, I want to keep an image of the XP partition in the Mac partition, lets say in DMG format for example, and when needed, I will boot from the Mac partition and restore the XP partition without having to reconfigure everything.

Someone told me to make two NTFS partitions and boot from one of them to restore the other but I wanted to use ARD to make it remotely...

Is that possible?

thanks
