This isn't bad, but I wanted a solution that's a little bit quicker and requires less setup time. I need a solution that work on lots of hard drives and is easy to manipulate and setup by anyone.
Well once you had it setup its ready to go...you would just mirror the drive to another drive and it will be on the other drive.
The issue is setting it up. Im thinking about it right now and would use grub. Im curious about this too...seeing as I have tried before to install windows (specifically vista ultimate 64bit) from a usb hd and had issues with it installing...it worked up till about the configuring windows screen, and then didnt work right..and I dont know why. Might of been a bad HD because it was an old hard drive.
Im curious how this would be set up...but because if i understand this correctly...he wants the install discs and live cds aswell. Im not sure how to go about that other than start with ubcd, and add what you can (live cds because thats easy) then have an option to boot to grub and then let grub take over and boot partitions that contain the contents of the install discs, unless there is a way to use ubcd and install windows from it.
I want to personally know more about this aswell because would be highly useful for me aswell. (going into the computer tech field aswell)
