MY OEM GHOST DOESN'T WORK

Yeah, my retail version of ghost doesn't work.  When it boots, it says "starting PC DOS, then it gives me these choices

No drivers
USB 1.1
USB 2.0
Firewire
zip/jaz

No matter what aI choose, it just goes to the "A:\" and if I do a dir search, it doesn't find any actual directories, only the following:

IBMBIO             COM
IBMDOS            COM
_BOOT_HD        NOZ
CONFIG             SYS
AUTOEXEC        BAT
MOUSE             COM
OAKCDROM       SYS
BTDOSM           SYS
FLAHPT             SYS
BTCDROM        SYS
ASPICD             SYS
MSCDEX           EXE
MOUSE            INI
ASPIUHCI           SYS
ASPIEHCI          SYS
ASPIOHCI          SYS
ASPI1394          SYS
HIMEM              SYS
GUEST             EXE

None of these lead to ghost.exe

Help, I'm trying to ghost a laptop.  FYI, I can get to the ghost .exe file by loading ghost into all of the laptops and following it through to the restart process, but I don't want to have to load ghost on every laptop, and damn it this should just work!

I also tried creating a "bootable CD" with Nero, and copying the files from the bootable floppy with ghost03 on it, but that doesn't work either, it says "starting caldera dos" (never heard of that before.

(Sorry, I meant to post to this board and not the High Rad board).

Hi, I've read all over the boards here and the net about Ghost 2003, and no where is it mentioned that the original CD is bootable! I read where people have so many problems creating boot CD's or floppies, but why not just use the ghost cd? I'm just wondering why it's not the preferred method? I'm new to Ghost and like it alot, and I had absolutely no problems creating an image using the original CD, I only added -ghostoncd switch, and I could access it and restore fine. Can anyone tell me why this isn't mentioned anywhere I've read?

Actually, you are doing fine up to this point. If the boot proccess executed correctly there should be a message saying that your CD/DVD drive has been mounted as drive C: or something.

now switch to that drive by typing 'C:' and hit enter
then switch to the support folder by typing 'CD SUPPORT' and hit enter
ghost should be there.

hope this helps

Not sure you have to.  With Ghost 2003, when you select the optical drive as the destination, Ghost asks you if you want to make it bootable--if you select 'yes', it does it for you.
