SSR 2013 Recovery Disk on USB

Created: 10 Apr 2013 • Updated: 10 Apr 2013 | 3 comments

Can I create recovery disk for multiple systems on same USB?

I have 7 different systems(hardware and OS). All have SSR 2013 loaded and are backing up to a 6Tb network drive just fine. I can create an SSRD on CD with no problem. What I would like to do is use ONE USB thumb drive for all bootable SSRD's.

When I tried using the same USB thumb drive for two XP systems, I was left with only 1 autorun.inf file on the thumb drive.

Is it possible?

Thanks, Rich

You can create a custom SRD with all required drivers AND store it on a USB flash device. Have a look at page 41 of the user guide.

Yes, this is possible.

As Markus says, the only thing that will be different is you may need to add different drivers (NIC, disk controller) for each system.

What I would do is this: create standard SRD on USB and then test this on each system. If you can see your disks and networking works, there is nothing more to do. If disks are not visible or networking does not work, you will need to build a custom SRD with the relevant drivers.

Have you been able to create the SRD ?
