I am editting an autoexec.bat file for a Win98 (Symantec Ghost) boot CD and would like to know the msdos command line that allows me to reboot the computer....IE

ghost.exe -clone,mode=load,src=y:homepc.gho,dst=1 -ntil -sure -quiet
cls
echo                 *****************************************
echo                
echo                              Please remove the CD from the drive
echo                
echo                 *****************************************
echo.
PAUSE
"THIS FINAL COMMAND"........thanks for your help!!

The -RB switch forces Ghost to restart the computer at the end of the restore process.  You would just need to make sure the cd isn't bootable.  An alternative would be to include instructions for the user to press CTRL-ALT-DELETE.

You could also create a little debug program to reboot the system and call it at the end of your batch file.  There is actually no DOS command to force a reboot.

The following is a line you can use to force the reboot, you may need to make sure you have the debug program on the disk.

ECHO G=FFFF:0000 ¦ DEBUG
