Ghost Boot Wizard - Bootmgr is missing

Hello All,

I am attempting to create a basic ghost bootable uSB pen, but running to an issue with "bootmgr is missing".

I used the Ghost boot wizard and selected WinPE and format to Fat32.  The wizard completed the setup with no issues.  But when I restart laptop and boot off the uSB I receive "bootmgr is missing".  

Any suggestions? I do see bootmgr on the USB.

Try FAT. I don't get the option for FAT 32 when I attempt to create a boot image on my Ghost system.

Try one of these formats:

ISO
CD/DVD

Can you test a boot from CD/DVD? It might be possible to extract the ISO format to the USB flash drive.

I created an ISO and noticed the bootmgr was created.. I mounted the ISO and copied the bootmgr to my USB and that seems to have resolved the issue... thanks again!

Sounds good. Oh you might not know this or you might but all drivers that you install on ghost has to be vista for the boot utility. I learned this today from Symantec. We are still deploying ghost solution to backup clients PC's.
