    We got 20 MacBook Air's in at our campus to be distributed to certain faculty and staff. What's the best method to clone these once they're dual-booted? Without firewire and target mode I have a feeling this is going to be really painful... but hopefully somebody here has done this already and has suggestions.

    I have not tested it yet but I think Acronis True Image could do it.

    You make a bootable CD with the program, boot from the cd and then you can clone the harddisk.

    I've done this in Windows environments, but never with a Mac partition.

    you posted this in the Macbook Air specific forum. you might also try the Windows on Mac forum, as it's not specifically a MBA problem...

    Mac OS: Carbon Copy Cloner or there is another app
    Windows: Winclone that runs in Mac OS, but you might need a corporate version for duplication, otherwise you need to duplicate it before registering windows.

    You might need to partition manually after cloning the Mac OS.
    Not sure if there is a way to automate it.

    I think if you search Winclone in MR forums you will find lots of threads on cloning both Mac and Windows OS.
