How to Put ASR floppy on CD


A

adi

when we createcomplete backup using ASR it asks for a floppy to store disk
signature ,Partition information,. Pnp device information since Floppy is a
very unreliablle media you store it for 1-2 years and it is dmaged. However
the ASR information is found in system\Repair folder

can we put those Asr files on I386 folder and write a script or modify
following in asr.sif
[ASRFMT.REMOVABLEMEDIA]
1 =1"\Device\Floppy()","\??\Volume{xxxxxxxx}","\DosDevice\A"

to make it sutable to place on Cd
Does any Body has idea.

when I tested ASR on my system i found that I have to to a repair install of
program requiring autostart services

similarly certificates in system32\catroot were not backed up althouh during
restore they were created by pnp devices as they were detected and installed

also these certificates were backed by systemstate Data and restored under

My qustion is suppose after one or two year you install a new hardware and
choose to do bare metal restore usingASR your new hardware will be detected
during Asr but catroot will be replaced by previous state

second question Is ASR is a reliable Or I should go for some diskimaging
software like DriveClonePro3.5 for bare metal restore

Any suggestion will be appreciated highkly

I've read many claims that you can burn an image of the ASR to CD and fool windows into thinking you have floppy. There are also many freeware virtual floppy drive programs online. My own choice would be to instal a fresh copy of Windows and then run restore using that. I've found many first-hand claims online that this works.
