PowerQuest V2i Software Development Kit 2.0 Helps Computer Manufacturers Build Servers and PCs

Same V2i technology used in the enterprise to protect servers and PCs now available to factories with programmatic control

OREM, Utah – Oct. 21, 2003 – PowerQuest® Corporation, a global provider of deployment and recovery solutions, announces PowerQuest V2i™ Software Development Kit (SDK) 2.0, designed to improve the system build processes used by Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs). V2i SDK 2.0 provides increased flexibility and customization through the use of a scriptable interface and language. V2i SDK 2.0 is a factory solution based on Virtual Volume Imaging (V2i) technology. Developed for PC and server configuration centers that need to configure large numbers of computers, V2i SDK 2.0 allows simple and reliable imaging, partitioning, file extraction, and file system access via a powerful scripting language. V2i SDK 2.0 provides modern imaging technology to supplement the PC and server build process, saving the OEM time and money.

V2i SDK 2.0 allows for easier file maintenance and system access and minimizes system reboots by combining multiple functions into a single executable, which eliminates inconsistent scripting and the need for multiple batch files. This unified scripting language provides increased imaging and recovery capabilities, including incremental imaging, skip bad sectors, dynamic disk support and spanned media restoration. V2i SDK 2.0 new capabilities include: 32-Bit functionality along with PARTIES and 48-Bit LBA support. The new SDK runs natively on WINPE and Linux environments. Legacy environments can be supported by accessing the Linux version of the SDK from the DOS environment.

V2i SDK 2.0 saves OEMs money by reducing the time required to: set up, partition, image and configure new PCs and servers. V2i SDK 2.0 supports WinPE, Linux and NT4 environments. For additional information on V2i SDK 2.0, go to For more information on PowerQuest V2i technology, go to
