Has anyone had any success using Lightning and Boot Camp? I am thinking it cannot be done but just wanted to see if anyone out there has figured out a way to do it. Or via the IVS. We are using Deploy Studio for our Boot Camp machines and IVS for all of our other computers. It would be nice to just be able to stay with FileWave solutions if possible.
Neither FileWave Lightning nor the IVS support imaging BootCamp partitions. You'd have to stick with DeployStudio or take a look at a 3rd party solution like Winclone from TwoCanoes. I haven't used it in several years but it was great with XP and Vista when I did use it in the past.
Yeah, even if you figured out how to get your Mac to PXE boot from the IVS, I think the imaging would repartition the hard disk and wipe out your Mac partitions too. Yikes.
Never managed to get a Mac to PXE boot but I did get one to boot from a Windows PE boot image from a USB thumb drive a few years ago. It saw all ALL of the partitions including the Mac partitions. I think the IVS uses a Linux boot image so it's been more likely to see the Mac partitions and wipe them out during the imaging process. Not good.
