Compaq Tablet PC + Ghost 2003

I've been trying fruitlessly for the past few days to recover an image i
created on a Compaq TabletPC with WinXP using Ghost 2003.   I can
create the image with no problem, and Ghost automatically burns the
image to the CD-RW in the Tablet's docking station (the CD-R is listed
as a Compaq USB multibay IDE, USB 2.0).

The problem occurs when i boot into ghost, either via the "bootable"
image disk, or through the restore option in the Ghost program in
windows. When ghost boots up, i'm unable to even see the CD-drive.  
What boggles my mind is that the software see the CD-RW when creating
the images, but it doesn't see it during the recovery process.

I've tried different USB versions of the driver, tried ASPI driver, and now i'm at a
standstill....any suggestions are greatly appreciated!!!

Anyone?? I think the problem lies in getting the proper CD-ROM driver on the boot disk, but i'm at a loss now.

Hmmm... How have you tried these various drivers?

(Remember, Ghost Boot disk uses DOS, so your driver must be loaded in the config.sys, and then referenced through the MSCDEX.EXE in the autoexec.bat)

Also, have you tried accessing the image over a network? (Share the CD on another computer via a network and access it that way using ghost's networking abilities?)

Hope this helps.

Can you make an IP bootdisk and then put the Ghost image up on the server and get it that way?  

At the company where I work, we use IP bootdisks to get to the server and then the Ghost Application and images all reside on the server.  This way we don't need specific drivers for any machine.  It comes in the ghost image.
