I have been using Symantec Ghost for quite a while with no issues. All of our PC's were 32-bit due to some old software that we could not use on 64-bit. Now I have a PC that is Windows 7 64-bit and I want to make a backup copy of it but when I put my Ghost bootable disk in it starts okay but here is the problem. I can see all my network drives and Local drives, but when I open them nothing is seen. It works completely fine on all of my 32-bit machines. If I get into Windows and put the bootable disk in the drive to run through the OS it sees all files on all drives fine, but I need it to work as bootable to create the image.
I am assuming my problem is the file on the Disk is Ghost32.exe and does not work with 64-bit Windows
Does anyone know how I can make a 64-bit bootable disk?

I have all of the 64-bit Ghost files, but I cannot figure out how to create the disk through the Ghost Boot Wizard.
I am using Symantec Ghost Console Version which is part of Symantec Ghost Solution Suite 2.5
