    You are attempting to install the product for workstations on a server platform. Please note that this product cannot be installed on a server. Please note that this product can not be installed on a server

    When I install the maxblast/seagate/wd disk clone utils.

    can anyone tell me how to make a clone of my boot drive for WHS?

    ?????? What program?
    Snapshot? It will backup the partition that you select, you ONLY care about SYS

    just clone the drive outside of windows using something like PING or Acronis or whatever. If the OS isn't booted then it doesn't matter if it won't install on a server OS.
