NightOwl,

Quote:
... Ghost 9.x would not install on the same system if Ghost 2003 was *installed*--i.e. the *Windows Interface* ...

Hmm ...... Shocked ...... I actually use the Windows Interface to browse Images using Ghost Explorer. If *.gho and *.ghs are accepted by the "Ghost Explorer of Ghost 9/10", then there is no problem.

Ghost 2003 from DOS would still be the primary backup utility but as a start ...... 8) ...... I would be prepared to compromize on Ghost Explorer.

I have Ghost 9.x which I have never installed--so I have the *Recovery Disk*.

When I boot to the *Recovery Environment*, the Ghost Explorer there was able to work with the older Ghost image file types of .gho and .ghs--so, maybe the Ghost 9.x and 10.x Ghost Explorer works okay in regular Windows with those older Ghost file types.

Or, maybe in the *Recovery Environment*, those file extensions call up the old Ghost Explorer program.

Any Ghost 9.x or 10.x'ers out there have old Ghost 2003 images to let us know about that?

The Ghost 9 Image Browser indicates it can open (from Windows)

*.v2i
*.iv2i
*.pqi
*.gho

NightOwl, as you use Ghost 2003 from floppies it's almost time to install Ghost 9 and have some playtime. The Image Browser works with your *.gho files.

Brian,
thanks for the information!

Pesky,
I wonder if we will ever see those rebates in Sweden? They would make the purchase decision much easier!

Looked at El Pescador's links--I wasn't aware that those rebates were restricted to USA only!

Looks like they may have dropped including Ghost 2003 along with Ghost 10!

Neither am I, it was just an assumption that they do not "ship overseas". I also assume that 25% VAT would be added when importing to Sweden.

I've delayed installing Ghost 9.x because the install forces the un-install of Ghost 2003's Windows interface--and there are fair number of questions here on the forum about using Ghost 2003's Windows interface.  So, in order to bring up the scenario that someone is asking about in Ghost 2003--I've delayed installing Ghost 9.x.  (Also, I've been involved in some other necessary activities--limiting *playtime* for awhile  Wink ! )

I would like to say--your joining us here made that decision much easier--your expertise on all things Ghost 9.x, and helping others with questions has greatly expanded the scope of the forum's knowledge.  Thanks for your ongoing input!

The rebate actually states:

Quote:
Valid only in the U.S. International submissions are not valid. Limit one rebate per customer.
Valid only at Fry’s Electronics.


But, looks like they do ship *International Orders*--but, not sure about added *VAT*--does that stand for *Value Added Tax*?

Yes and our government love it ...... Roll Eyes ...... !

If the merchandise is shipped from a private address (with a person attached to it) the value has to be higher than ~$100 but as soon as it is shipped from a company, everything is scrutinized and taxed.

Sounds like you need a friend states-side .. to send you plainly-wrapped packages.

Rad,
I have actually done that when I was buying a few PDA's at eBay. None of the sellers shipped internationally and then the VAT issue.

The sellers shipped to my friend in Mill Hall PA. When she had received all my purchases, she split them into $100 (the limit for VAT when it is privately declared) batches and I received three packages.
