Is it possible to clone the system of a "Compute Stick" (STK1A32WFC)?

Hello,

I just purchased several "Windows 10 INTEL Compute Stick" and I would like to deploy the installation I made on one of them. I was considering using Symantec Ghost to perform this cloning, but I have not found how to make "network boot". Is it expected?

Also, I tried to boot from a USB CD drive without success, is this normal?

Thanking you in advance for your answers.

I use Clonezilla (http://clonezilla.org http://clonezilla.org) which is based on Linux for cloning. The advantage is that it is free, just download and make a bootable USB. The disadvantage is that it is not very "user-friendly" compared to Windows-based apps.

Hi Eric_de_bordeaux,

 

 

To answer your first question, yes it is expected because the Intel® Compute Stick does not have the wake on LAN option. It is possible to boot from USB CD drive, in order to help you with this could you please explain me more about the OS that you tried to install? Also, tell me if you get any error during the installation.

 

 

Regards,

 

Hellen.

Hi Hellen,

Thank you for your answer.

I think I did not use the correct terminology.

When I spoke about "network boot", I meant "Preboot Execution Environment".

I ask you to excuse my broken English.

To answer your last question ; After initializing the OS preloaded Windows 10 and have completed with applications and configurations I need, my administrator password no longer worked. I wanted to reset it with a boot CD Bart PE, but the Compute Stick doesn't recognize the USB drive and restarted automatically on its system.

I wish I could create an image of this configuration to clone it if needed.

Best regards,

Hi Eric_de_BORDEAUX,

 

 

I am investigating about this; as soon as I get a method to do PXE with this compute stick, I will let you know the outcome.

Hi Eric_de_BORDEAUX,

 

 

To use PXE from the Intel® Compute Stick you need to choose wake on LAN option, and the Intel® Compute Stick doesn't have that option; but I did a lab using Clonezilla* as Choong suggested, it could help.

 

Here you can find information about, How to install and use Clonezilla

Hope this helps.

 

Regards,

 

Hellen.
