Norton ghost enterprise edition with foolproof menu
Posted on 2003-02-24
I have the following problem:
I work in a support environment where we use different laptops to test pcmcia cards. To assist customers as best as we can we'd like to recreate their problems on our laptops using vanilla install images of several OS's.
Currently we do the following:
Partition the drive in one partion that contains the OS and the other contains the different image files. With a Ghost bootdisk we then locally dump the OS from the image file onto the first partition. This has worked fine for a while, but every once in a while someone attempts to delete the image files uses fdisk... etc.
Now I would like to do the following, first of all all images come from a dedicated file server. I want to create a boot disk (one dedicated to each particular laptop). The boot disk will initialize the network card, then it will load a menu, in which the client can select the operating system they want. The client can not specify what partition, etc. as will be configured in the menu options itself.
I would like to use Symantec Ghost enterprise 7.0.
Does anyone have any ideas what would be the best way to go about this is?
