I have just upgraded several of the laptops in our family with fresh installs of Windows 8.1, and keen to create system images before they are 'polluted' with real user data, cookies, patches etc. Due to the amount of storage space required, I am planning on creating these system backup images on a shared network drive. The question I have is, has anyone successfully restored a system image from a network drive using the Windows installation DVD? Is this even an option, and does it need any drivers to be downloaded to allow the boot from DVD to access the system images stored on a network drive? Also, any tips on how I should organize these systems images to aid the recovery process (mainly in terms of distinguishing one image from the next so that the appropriate image is selected for recovery)?
