Clean a Master System and Restore the Operating System

If you have already run the Autodesk product on the master computer, the master computer should be properly cleaned first.

To clean a master computer and restore the operating system

  1. Clean the hard drive, including the boot sector.

    For example, if you use Norton’s GDISK utility, use the following command:

    gdisk 1 /diskwipe

    Where 1 is the hard disk that is being wiped.

    NoteIf you use a utility other than Norton Ghost, make sure that it cleans the boot sector; otherwise, you will not be able to activate Autodesk products.
  2. Create a new partition and use the restore CD or product CD to install the operating system.
