Hi,

I wanted to use PQDI.exe from the bootdisk with a script using the /CMD, /IMG, /LOG, /ERR & /DBG parameters. And after running, the Powerquest Driveimage logo shows up, then DriveImage stops and I'm back at the command line. The log file only shows the command I've entered. What could be the problem?

Well I have not but Drive Image works like a dream when started manually from my Win98-Dos Bootdisk. The scripting does not work.

I'm dutch speaking, igive you the translation of the 2°link :
His Autoexec.bat

autoexec.bat
@echo off
GMOUSE
MSCDEX.EXE /D:banana /L:R
R:\PQDI
PQDI /CMD=A:\restore.scr /IMG=R:\ART.PQI /NBS /SCO

restore.scr
SELECT DRIVE 1
DELETE ALL
SELECT FREESPACE FIRST
SELECT IMAGE 1
RESIZE IMAGE PROPORTIONAL
RESTORE
REBOOT
======================
His reply :
R:\PQDI executes pqdi.exe
then  PQDI /CMD=blabla is not executed anymore; to correct :.

Probably you have to : (R: = the partition i think)
R:
CD \
CD PQDI
PQDI.EXE /CMD=(rest)

===============

If you want the rest also, post back

Could you please translate this?

heb inmiddels het mbv deplocenter geprobeerd van PQ, maar ook hier lukt het niet om de image auto terug te zetten. er staat iets fout in restore.scr, zodat ie het programma afsluit ipv de image terug te zetten. hieronder de text om de image van partitie 2 van een 40 gb hd terug te zetten naar partitie 1. (disk is opgedeeld in 2 even grote delen)

text restore.scr:
SELECT DRIVE 1
DELETE PARTITION 1
SELECT FREESPACE FIRST
SELECT IMAGE ALL
RESIZE IMAGE PROPORTIONAL
RESTORE
REBOOT

wt staat hier nu precies fout dan??

-------------------------------------------------------

heb het script iets aangepast nu, en wordt nu voor het grootste gedeelte verwerkt, alleen als hij de image teug wil zetten gaat het fout, krijg dan error message: 1810; image file could not be opened.

alles gaat dus goed totdat image teruggezet moet worden, partitie etc wordt allemaal gewist, maar dan kan ie de image niet lezen ofzo. handmatig wel het wel, maar auto nog niet helemaal.

script is nu als volgt:
SELECT DRIVE 1
// De bestaande partitie(s) wordt verwijderd
DELETE ALL
SELECT FREESPACE FIRST
SELECT IMAGE 1 (<--hier gaat het fout dan)
RESIZE IMAGE PROPORTIONAL
// Nu wordt de installatie hersteld op de C: schijf
RESTORE
REBOOT

en krijg het volgende in beeld te staan:
syntax checking-->SELECT DRIVE 1
syntax checking-->// De bestaande partitie(s) wordt verwijderd
syntax checking-->DELETE ALL
syntax checking-->SELECT FREESPACE FIRST
syntax checking-->SELECT IMAGE 1
syntax checking-->RESIZE IMAGE PROPORTIONAL
syntax checking-->// Nu wordt de installatie hersteld op de C: schijf
syntax checking-->RESTORE
syntax checking-->REBOOT
running-->SELECT DRIVE 1
// De bestaande partitie(s) wordt verwijderd
running-->DELETE ALL
running-->SELECT FREESPACE FIRST
running-->SELECT IMAGE 1 (<--hier gaat het fout dan)
IMAGE FILE COULD NOT BE OPENED.
de rest van het script wordt dan niet verder gelezen.

heb de image op de d-schijf staan (is op andere 2e HD)
de code wordt alsvolgt aangeroepen:
PQIMGCTR /CMD=A:\RESTORE.SCR /IMG=D:\BACKUP.PQI /NBS /SNC

iemand een verklaring voor de foutmelding die ik nu nog heb?

(disk is opgedeeld in 2 even grote delen)

--->i tried with the deploycentre of PQ, but also here i do not succeed in putting the image auto back (automatic?). There is something wrong in restore.scr, causing the program to shutdowninstead of putting the image back. Now follows the text to restore the image of partition 2 from the 40 Gb to partition 1. (The disk is divided in 2 equal parts)

Then he asks what is wrong in the section above.
-------------------------------------------------------------------

heb het script iets aangepast nu, en wordt nu voor het grootste gedeelte verwerkt, alleen als hij de image teug wil zetten gaat het fout, krijg dan error message: 1810; image file could not be opened.

alles gaat dus goed totdat image teruggezet moet worden, partitie etc wordt allemaal gewist, maar dan kan ie de image niet lezen ofzo. handmatig wel het wel, maar auto nog niet helemaal.

script is nu als volgt:

--->i adapted the script somewhat, and most of it goes thru, only if he wants to put the image back, i get the error message : 1810; image file could not be opened.

so everything runs fine, till the image is put back, partition etc is being deleted, but then he cannot read the image. When i do it manually, it's ok, but not automatic

script is now :    script follows
------------------------------------------------------
// De bestaande partitie(s) wordt verwijderd = existing partitions are deleted
------------------------------------------------------
running-->SELECT IMAGE 1 (<--hier gaat het fout dan)         <------     here is the fault
IMAGE FILE COULD NOT BE OPENED.
de rest van het script wordt dan niet verder gelezen.             ======  rest of script is not read

heb de image op de d-schijf staan (is op andere 2e HD)         =======i have the image on the D-drive(is on 2°HD)
de code wordt alsvolgt aangeroepen:                                   ======code is brought up by :
PQIMGCTR /CMD=A:\RESTORE.SCR /IMG=D:\BACKUP.PQI /NBS /SNC

iemand een verklaring voor de foutmelding die ik nu nog heb?  anybody can explain this error?

Ahh ok. I suppose it is the same line that is causing my error. I'll split points in half for finding the post/translating but with a grade of B. Thank you gentlemen. If I can come up with an exact solution I'll post it here for everybody to enjoy.

Well when it comes to the translating - sure. But my problem is not completely solved yet. The B description says:

>>The Expert(s) provided an acceptable solution, or a link to an acceptable solution, that you were able to use, although you may have needed a bit more information >>to complete the task.

And this is exactly what the status is now IMHO.
