Automate restore from Ghost 2003

Hi can anyone tell me if it is possible to automatically restore a partion from an image file on CD.
It all ready auto boots from the CD but I need it to auto restore the partition to.
a bit like an unattended install.

Thanks Guys.

a:\ghost.exe -clone,mode=load,src=e:\imagename.gho,dst=1 -sure -rb

this will put the image on the first available partition and supress asking all the usual questions :)

Yes its quite easy as long as you know what partition you want to send it to, youll have to remake the bootable CD though, instead of having ghost.exe in the autoexec.bat file you need to put the switches on to tell ghost what to do when it starts

here they all are :)

so your autoexec.bat would have

a:\mscdex.exe /d:cdrom /m:12 /l:e
a:\ghost.exe -clone,mode=load,src=e:\imagename.gho,dst=1 -sure -rb

this will put the image on the first available partition and supress asking all the usual questions :)  

obviously you will also need to taylor the CDROM line above so it maches the systax in your config.sys fie

You could always use the ghostwalker tool built in with the latest version of Ghost. With this piece of software, you can specify exactly what machine to ghost from a central location, it will reimage the machine, restart and you don't even have to touch the client!

hope this helps!
