Bootable Ghost 9 rescue disk / CD

Hi

How can I create a Ghost 9 bootable rescue disc CD?

When I start up Ghost 9 in full Windows XP mode, there's no option to create such
a boot disc / CD

This boot CD / disc needs to have USB drivers loaded so that I can restore from an
external USB disk

Hi!

There is a lot of issues around the ghost 9, seems like they didn't apply to make rescue disc on dvd until now.
The way I found to do it is to create a image in ghost (backupdisk) and save it to a different partition/hdd. Then add the ghost dosapp to the image and burn it to a dvd or cd ;) try it out and get back to me!

If I recall correctly, version 9 is live and in windows environment, and there is no option to create rescue boot disk. However, it can create backup images and store in external drive or DVD media. See link below for how to:

You will have divide the image into 4.3G (if DVD disc capacity is 4.7 G standard) .... this option is listed when you run wizard setup.

To open a iso file you need a tool like poweriso (ww.poweriso.com) you can open and edit the iso and add and delete whatever you like from it and then just save it again and then burn it with nero or simlilar!

So if we want to restore from the image, what tool do we use to read Ghost 9 images
(In Ghost 8, this is "From Image") :

For Ghost 9, the boot disc is the SAME as the install disc.  You can't create another one, but if your install disc is bad, you would need to get a replacement one from Symantec.

To restore an image or read an image, you set your bios to boot from cd, insert the Ghost 9 cd, and then reboot.  Ghost 9 automatically starts up when you restart.  

In Windows you can restore files/folders by starting the Ghost Explorer program and browse to the backup-image-file.

You restore the image from dos with the dosapp you add to the image, it will boot it up when starting the computer!
