Download the altirisbwc*.img file to the C:\Program Files\Altiris\eXpress\Deployment Server\Images directory on the Altiris Server hard drive. 2. Optional: Download and apply the RDeploy patch and/or sample jobs. 3. Set the BIOS -> Boot Order option for each Client to 'boot to network' first, if that has not been done already. 4. Optional: Capture partition 5, using the -p5 option, to save any customized settings on the Client. 5. Use Altiris DS 6.8 (SP2 or later) to deploy this image to clients. 6. Optional: Copy the /settings/settings*.txt files from the partition 5 image from Step 4 to restore the configuration settings. Another alternative for preserving settings is to use a browser on another system to connect to Webmin on a client (https://myclienthostorip.com:10010). Then go to the Others tab and select the System Logs icon and cut-and-paste contents of the settings*.txt files. Use pscp to copy these files to other clients after installation of the new image.
