Question,

If I reinstall windows, then install Ghost, then recover from the windows interface with Ghost, will that recover my PC?

Thanks,

MArk



You can't restore an OS partition from Windows.

Hi Brian,

Sorry if I am getting a bit fragmented.

I have a PC and a laptop, whilst trying to copy my dying HD to a new HD windows completely failed.  However I can't restore from Ghost to the new HD as I cannot see my USB drive whilst in the recovery enviroment.  Therefore I am stuffed....at present.

Jamcoops,

Here's one other recovery idea:

You appear to have a laptop and a desktop pc, correct?  Are they or were they connected via a network where they previously could see each other?  If so, you could:

1. Attach the USB external drive to the laptop
2. On your laptop, enable the path/folder of the USB drive as a shared network resource.
3. Boot your desktop PC from the Ghost 10 Recovery CD.
4. Enable network access from the advanced options there.
5. Browse to the path/folder name you previously assigned from your laptop.
6. Restore that way.

Hi guys,

Won't let me map a drive to the laptop from ghost, used laptop name and IP address.  However I am downloading a copy of Ghost 9 from Symantec, very slowly though at 11.7kb/sec...not me it's their end...So I will try Ghost 9 in the wee hours of the morning here...

Thanks for all your help and I will let you know the outcome..

It's good to know that Symantec will allow a download of Ghost 9 for this situation. Let us know the outcome.

Thanks Brian and NightOwl.  I sometimes think our job is to work *around* problems rather than fix them.  Symantec ought to pay anyone here $29.95 for each solution.  From that formula both you guys would be wealthy(er)!  Grin

I'm glad Symantec gave out the Ghost 9 access for Mark.  I think the network access would have worked if they hadn't come through.  I suspect the desktop needed a different ip address and subnet mask, plus sometimes user that is predefined on the laptop.  (I should test that myself).

Hi all,

Update....Ghost 9 ran through its process, got a couple of errors "string length does not match file size" which I got round using the supplied tools.  After that my drives, according to Ghost, were reinstalled.

Windows would not boot, NTLDR missing, used repair function on XP to get back in.  All files present but had not recreated the original login profiles.  Using regedit to point the restored files back to the right logins. However, it seems that no executable files have been restored winword, Money 05 etc...all the dlls and other bits are there but .exe are missing.  Therefore am reinstalling Office etc...

I am happy that I have not lost any important info to do with my business, however I am very disapointed with Symantec, should have learnt my lesson when I vowed never to buy their product again after using Internet security.

I would like to test Ghost 10
