Norton Ghost 2003 or Norton Ghost 12?
Posted on 2007-07-20
Hi all, I build computers to sell as a hobby. What I would like to do is create a set of images, sort of like the recovery disks that HP gives on their computers I want an easy way for the people that buy my computers to restore them with all the apps and drivers as when they bought it.
I have both Norton Ghost 2003 and 12. I would prefer to use 2003 if possible.
All the computers I build have IDE optical DVD burners and SATA HDDs
I want mouse support
Im using XP SP2
I like 2003 ability to create the images on self-booting DVDs that include Ghost.exe.
I have read that you can use 2003 with a SATA, if you use either the NOIDE or the FNI switches but I also read that you should use FNI instead of NOIDE when you have an IDE optical drive, as NOIDE disables all IDE drives thus making the whole exercise moot.
I plan to use Microsofts Mouse.exe instead of loading mouse.com and mouse.ini
I have found the place to customize boot disk, \docs and settings\all users\application data\Symantec\ghost\template\common. Ive placed the mouse.exe in that folder, then gone into ghosts Options> User Files>Add Files, and change Autoexec.bat and Config.Sys with no joy.
All Im looking to do is add mouse.exe to the boot disk and autoexec.bat file that ghost 2003 creates when it backs the image up to DVD
If I cant use 2003 for this will 12? Ive got it, but have not yet read the manual. I also have True Image 10, but I dont want a boot disk AND then also have the back-up disks
Can someone help me with this?
Many thanks in advance
