I am trying to upgrade the computers at the school I work for from 98 to 2000. Now these are fairly old computers and I don't have time to install 2000 on each one, so I've setup one created an image and ghosted the room. Unfortunately to of the machines floppy drives are stuffed, can you tell me how to boot to ghost without a floppy, I'm using ghost 7.5.

Yes, both computers have cd-roms, and our ghost server has a burner.

I have no experience with Ghosting, however if they both have CD-roms, then could you not simply burn it onto a CD and boot from the CD for those two computers?

I have thought of that but the ghost program won't let me make a cd boot disk. in the version I have it will only let you create floppy disks boot disks.

Have you tried moving it across the network, and then simply booting from the computer?
