Laptop hard disk drive -- Ghost backup
Posted on 2006-05-21
Using Norton Ghost, I want to backup my laptop's 40GB hard disk to a desktop disk, BEFORE removing it from the laptop.
(1) Can I do it in "Safe Mode"? Do I need Networking? I'm sometimes having trouble booting into Full Win XP Pro.
(2) Can I do it with a boot CD? Is the Norton Ghost CD bootable? The laptop has no floppy drive.
(3) Can I "ghost" the laptop drive to a larger desktop drive? And then restore it to the same or larger laptop drive?
Could you give me step-by-step instructions on how to do this? Thank you very much!
