I have a GhostBoot disk that was used to create some GHO files on a USB drive.  We now need to apply the GHO files to our systems.  The problem is... The boot disk has Ghost version 11 where we use 8.2 in production.  The solution seems as simple as copying the ghost32.exe that is on the CD to our production server and scripting.  However, i can not see the files on the disk because it is a boot disk... Is it possible at all to get the files from the boot disk to a system?????

Boot your CD then copy the file you need from the CD to a floppy or HD that uses Fat32.

How do i do that?  When i boot into the dos portion of the boot disk the only disk that is noticed is the one it is on.

Try drive B for the actual floppy drive, or as mentioned, use a fat 32 formatted HD that is directly attached to the PC (not via USB), and then try the different drive letters.

I apologize for taking so long.  This question was for a co-worker of mine who was not as excited to complete this task as originally anticipated.  He has been able to get the file onto a Fat32 HD.  Thank  you!
