Using Ghost to create Bootable Recovery Dvds (OS is Factory Default Vista Home Premium)
Posted on 2008-10-23
I have got a XPS 1530 with Vista Home premium preinstalled. I have already backed up once using Ghost 12 . Now i have installed some work related programs and removed some unrelated programs . Now i have my Notebook as perfect i want. I have backed up the Image to My External harddisk . Though it is nice to have on it , I cannot always have the images with me. I have my sensitive files with my 40GB 1.8" harddrive, which is very portable. All i need is *Bootable* *easy to deploy* DVD ( I used to have one with my old toshiba notebook , restore time wasaround 15 mins)
1) I know that Ghost 2003 can create bootable dvd's with image in it , But it is not compatible with vista.
2) I am looking for easy solutions , like the recovery dvds used to come with Toshiba before , with DOS ghost in it.
3)I tried to convert my image into DVD using Ghost solution suite 15 day trial , but it is asking for *.GHO files , but apparently i have only *.sv2i .
Please mention a Method to do a quick recovery , like in 10-20 mins.
Thanks in advance.
