Do you know where your Client Restore CD is? Even if you do know where it is, you probably have an outdated version. Read on to find out where to get the latest version and to follow simple steps to download and create a CD for that PC Restore.
My neighbor asked me to upgrade the hard drive in his PC this weekend. I immediately connected it to my network and installed the Windows Home Server Connector. Once I completed the backup I realized that I had lost my Restore CD. The CD was packed up in some box somewhere and it was too hot to look for it. What’s a boy to do?
Well download and burn another one of course!
This computer was so ugly…how ugly was she? I had four beers and I still did not want to bring her home.
Mental Note: Even if I had found the disc it was probably not up to date for the latest WHS PowerPack.
- Internet connection
- Blank CD and burning software
- One beer (Optional as always)
