Burn image to USB DVD using Ghost
Posted on 2004-10-05
Would like to burn a full image of the PC OS to a USB DVD burner, if possible. Most of my experience is with Norton Ghost, which does not ship with drivers when Ghost is in DOS mode to make or read an image for recovery. Willing to use non-Ghost ware if there is better compatibility with USB.
Have looked over other solutions and it appears that Ghost in DOS and USB are not happy together.
The main goal is to burn images of the operating systems for recovery from PC failure. We use Ghost now and burn mostly to network shares or CD burners. The CD burners are on all PCs (laptops, desktops and servers) and are cheap to replace. This is not true of DVD burners yet, so I am trying to take one burner and run around the shop making images. The CD burners work fine but require 4-8 CDs which is just inconvenient and makes the task one that I have to attend to while it burns.
