To clone RT drivers, NI recommends the use of the NI Replication and Deployment (RAD) Utility
. This tool provides a turn-key solution for automated RT image replication, deployment and management.Windows OS:
All Windows embedded controllers will have an OEM version of Acronis True Image installed, so the user can create an image of the Windows drive or entire hard disk and store it to a specific location
and deploy the created image to multiple embedded controller drives or hard disks. NI recommends this tool because it is a tested scenario. Results of cloning with other software were not tested and therefore are unknown.
If any issues occur, install Windows from scratch onto the controller
and use a batch installer to install the specific software and drivers needed. For more information, please refer to this document on creating a custom installer with the NI Batch Installer Builder
