Has anything changed/improved on restoring over WiFi? I found the oldish threads that basically made it sound pretty heroic to get get set up to restore over WiFI -- is there any easier way available? Thanks! /bernie\

Bernard,

WiFi connections performance is always much below the announced maximum bandwidth. Aside from the obvious (faster wireless, wired connection or local USB), I am not sure what the alternatives are ...

I know they're not as fast as a wired connection, but in my case the speed isn't that much of an issue. And the posts I read about how to "wifi enable" the recovery disk were really scary and hard/tricky. I wouldn't have thought it would be that big a deal to include 802.1 drivers on the Linux recovery disk and leave the speed question aside [although I admit I don't know a lot about the world of linux drivers and how hard it is to make the re0covery disk]. Oh well... wired isn't an option but I guess I can try to find my old USB external drive and see if I can get that to work..

Ah, yes. Good catch: wireless support on the recovery CD. Has been a problem. You've got to try it and/or upgrade to WinPE. But again, better to rely on USB.
