we are coming off of the dos version of ghost (6.3 and then 8.0). we used a net boot diskette to boot the machine, we then would map across the network to store or retrieve the image. network security is now such that are unable to perform this task in the same manner. we purchased symantecs ghost 2003 enterprise to hopefully perfom the task locally on a pc that is not connected to the network.
we have a desktop pc running xp pro, we also have a device called the EZ GIG II adapter (www.apricorn.com
) that allows you to connect any 2.5 or 3.5 IDE, SATA or PATA drive via the USB 2.0 port. I can connect the drive I want to image, I can see its contents and access areas not requiring special permissions so I know I am capable of seeing and accessing the drive.
my question is this... can I use ghost 2003 enterprise as simply as we did with the dos versions? I have it loaded on the desktop pc now, I have the EZ GIG adapter connected with a 2.5 SATA drive attached as drive "F" and I want to capture an image of that drive that anyone (with little computer knowledge) with the same model can lay back down via a USB DVD player.
any assistance you can offer would GREATLY appreciated!!!
