XP Pro and Drive Image pro 3.0
Hi there I am recently trying to do a XP rollout. i am trying to make a XP Image of one machine so i can clone the other machines. im using Drive image 3.0 the destination drive on the network has enough space on it but i keep getting an error #1527 bad update sequence number. the machine i am trying to copy is a HP compaq DX6100MT the hard drive is a Samsung sp0411c. Has anyone come accross this problem?

Drive Image Pro 3 is not for XP
It is very old. Ver. 7 is available now.
I use drive image 5.5 and/or 6.0 and both work great for XP, 2000, and NT

Power Quest was bought by symantec.
the makers of Ghost.

Good Luck

Buy Symantec Ghost 9 (it replaces Ghost and Drive Image). DI 3.0 is far too old for XP.

Symantec now owns Power Quest. This means they own Partition Magic, and Drive Image.

You can use Drive Image 7, Partition Magic 8, or Ghost 9.

I use Partition Magic 8 and Drive Image 7.

Some people swear by Ghost.


Get rid of Drive Image 3. Drive Image 7 is the only version that is compatable with XP.

id like to thank ereyone for there advise about creating an Win XP image with Drive Image 3.0. As i discovered a few of you said this could not be done. Using a 40GB drive i partitioned 5 Gb as Primary and the rest as logical when formatting i used FAT instead of NTFS for some reason Drive Image 3.0 does not seem to like Win XP formatted as NTFS. Once Windows was loaded on the machine i loaded all the programs that would be used within my company. I then used sysprep and made it image ready. I then used drive Image 3.0 to create an image and stored it on the network. I have no problems using and it works fine.
