OREM, Utah - February 15, 2000 - PowerQuest® Corp. is joining Microsoft Corp. to deploy Windows 2000 Professional-based workstations with Drive Image® Pro 3.01 during Thursday's Microsoft Windows 2000 launch in San Francisco. At the event, PowerQuest will showcase Drive Image Pro's ability to quickly and easily deploy multiple Windows 2000 Professional equipped computers simultaneously.

"In the months leading up to the release of Windows 2000, PowerQuest has worked closely with Microsoft to ensure that we support this new operating system," said Steve Fairbanks, vice president of business development and strategic planning at PowerQuest. "PowerQuest's Drive Image Pro works seamlessly with Microsoft's Sysprep Tool and Windows 2000. With Drive Image Pro, customers have a fast and cost effective method for deploying Windows 2000 Professional-based desktops, speeding up both their imaging and their deployments."

An independent research study conducted by KeyLabs concludes that Drive Image Pro is the fastest solution for deploying Windows-based workstations and a clear performance leader in the area of multicasting.* Drive Image Pro's SmartSector technology provides a revolutionary way for IS professionals to deploy and manage Windows-based workstations. Drive Image Pro also allows users to deploy other versions of Windows 2000.
