Ghosting using Symantec? v8.2
Posted on 2006-06-08
We have a new set of laptops that we need to use Ghost v8.2 on...
What we're experiencing is this:
We have a good pc, and have uploaded a good image to a computer we're using on our enterprise LAN--to my desktop pc...to a shared drive...using it like a server...to create and restore ghost images to and from the laptops we want to set up.
We then made a cd with winimage that has all the dos programs (we thought...we read some instruction on a link inside an experts exchange answered question...and all steps worked fine) we needed, using the winimage program. The laptop does boot fine from the cd we made, although the program ghost.exe is not on it (it wouldn't load on the winimage program--on the bootable cd)...so I then used the laptop's floppy and started ghost.exe. It starts ghost fine, but all of the peer-to-peer and ghostcast functions of ghost are disabled (you know---grayed out...unusable).
We just need to be able to use the ghost program to restore an image to the laptop.
ONE more thing--- the drive we're using to boot with is external...
Do we need to boot to an internal cd rom drive instead? Will that change anything?
Thanks one and all!
