Hello,

Can someone please tell me which version of Norton ghost or Acronics, can I run off (boot off) a floppy disk?

I need to image(ghost) a few old old machines that only have floppy drives on them. No CD drives or network connections.

please & thank you

If the machines are that old then they probably have hard drives under a GB...

Might be easier to pull the hard drives and attach to another machine for imaging purposes!

Ghost 5 is old. I have no idea where you'd get it. But I like n2fc's solution. Just pull the drive out and use something like ODIN or Acronis.

take the harddisk out of the old machines
connect it via external IDE Sata USB enclosure
Use any latest imaging software
