    Hi There,

    I would like to create disk image of iMac (10.4.11 & 10.5.6) workstations to reinstall other workstations. Could anyone give some solid steps to do this process? I was trying to use Disk Utility, but it takes more than an hour to create a corrupted image. Is there any best third party Disk Utility with better performance?

    Disk Utility

    I am not sure about the image format. Which formatting is better to store on an external firewire hard disk?
    1. read only
    2. compressed
    3. read/write

    Crude but simple: Use "dd" from the terminal.
