creating a guest using a Ghost snapshot
Posted on 2007-10-20
I'm trying to reinstall VMware Fusion using a Ghost snapshot I've created. I lost the original guest disk, but my Ghost 12 snapshots are 100% intact. I've even converted them to VMWare...
I'm a bit stuck :-( this has been much more challenging then I thought. Here is where I am
* I have several intact copies of Ghost 12 snapshots (stored in several places) :-)
* When I try to Restore Computer using XP (after installing a fresh copy of XP), it wants me to reboot using the CD. No prob. When I do, Vista boots off of the Rescue CD, but it doesn't see the guest disk
* I've even went into Ghost, and converted the snapshot into a VMWare disk, but when I try to use it within Fusion, it complains that it's just .2MB (I created split disks using Ghost's conversion process)
* What I'm doing now, as I'm typing this, is converting my snapshot again, using Ghost, but asking it to not create a split disk image. I'll see if Fusion likes it this time.
Any tips. At this point, until I'm able to use my Ghost snapshots, I can't get any work done :-(
Looking forward to your reply ---
