Creating a Boot CD for use with Ghost 8.3
Posted on 2006-05-09
I have a question which hopefully has a simple answer.
I want to create a boot CD/DVD that I can boot from in order tu run GHOST.EXE.
All I want to do is:
1. Insert this boot CD into my server's CD drive
2. Start up the server
3. Have the server boot off this CD
4. Be able to run GHOST.exe from the CD itself
I have tried using Nero to create a boot CD and have tried adding the GHOST.EXE application to the disk. Nero goes away and prompts me to refer it to a floppy disk with the relevant system files on it. It then goes away and creates the CD with these files along with the GHOST.EXE executable.
However, when I boot from this CD, it boots okay but when I try to run GHOST.EXE it tells me "Bad Command or Filename". When I do a DIR, the GHOST.EXE is not on the CD. If I take the CD out of this server and put it into a PC and view the CD, GHOST.EXE is there.
I am assuming that it is creating a virtual directory or something to boot from, but how do I create a CD that simply boots the system and runs GHOST.EXE?
