I have Norton System Works Pro 2004 with Ghost included. When I execute the Ghost program I select "Ghost Utilities" , then "Norton Ghost Boot Wizard". I then have several options as to what type of boot disk to create with the correct drivers neeeded. Such as CD\DVD, USB, Firewire, SCSI, etc. and the Ghost Wizard does ALL the work.

I hope this helps. I'm no expert, but I have made numerous Boot Disks that have worked on many different systems with no problems. That is if I select the correct drivers!

Good luck to Thee Ox. :whistling:

The Ghost truly is one. I have no clue what good it is doing. Just when I'm trying to back up everything on an external hard drive, DVDs, used PCLinq2 to move files from one computer to another, it would be nice to have Ghost do SOMEthing to help with a back up as well as help when I finish the Recovery. Most of the time I see a pop-up telling me that Ghost can't back up a particular thing. Does anyone know how I can find out what it has done so I can utilize it when putting everything back? I, also, have WinBack-up and can't figure out how to get it to work, either. Any "expert" at a (fee-based) tech support hasn't heard of these! What a waste of a lot of money as well as expectations and time. I guess I'll look for the Ghost Wizard that was mentioned. Thanks for that idea.[font=Fixedsys]

Heres the best guide on Ghost on the net.

http://ghost.radified.com/

Read it carefully. I used it to learn how to make my own recovery cd's and dvd's. If you really can't seem to get Ghost to work i would try Acronis True Image For $50. Acronis True Image is easy to configure and use.
