Boot Ghost from external HD
Posted on 2008-06-20
I service lot's of computers. So i've made a Ghost image of each one to just boot from a ghost cd and restore the damaged os from an external HD where i have all the ghost images i use.
Problem is that many of this computers doesn't have a working cd rom or just dont have cd rom at all. Also booting ghost from cd is slow. My workaround is to carry an external CD rom and an external HD.
I wish i can just carry my external HD and boot ghost from the external HD and then perform the installation avoiding carrying the bulky and delicate external cd rom.
So i want to have an external HD that boots Ghost and use the rest of the remaining space of the disk to store ghost images.
How can i make the external HD boot ghost?
ps. I use ghost 9
ps2. I have a new 320GB hd waiting to try this.
ps3. Booting to a file manager from where i can run ghost/clean windows installations/etc is as good as my first requirement.
