Hi !

I have crated a ghost Image of OS (with all sw on OS partition) on CD.

How can I directly store this image to my OS partition?

Looking forward to your help.

You don't. The image is on the CD.
If you copy it to the drive with your OS on, you wouldn't be able to use it as you can't ghost to a partition with the ghost file on it you're ghosting from.

That is, if your OS partition is the first one and your Ghost file is on the first partition, you can't Ghost from the file on Partition 1 back to Partition 1 because it would overwrite the ghost file.

You could make a second partition by resizing the OS partition down a bit using PartitionMagic or similar and putting your image on there instead.
