spanned images on 1 DVD
Apr 23rd, 2007 at 1:08am
 
Hello guys,

I am trying to create a boot DVD with the OS and some Apps on it for quick recovery.. its only 2 files.. 1 *.gho and 1 *.ghs. I want to make this DVD 100% automated. Everything works 100% except it asks me to locate the spanned file on the DVD, once i do that i can continue. Is there a way to make ghost autoload the spanned file ?

here is my autoexec.bat:

Code:

@echo OFF
mscdex.exe /D:mscd001 /L:Q
Q:
ghost -fni -clone,mode=load,src=Q:\WINXP.gho,dst=1 -sure -fx -auto
ghstwalk /CN="<RANDOM_NUMERIC>" /SURE
echo Rebuild complete. Reboot Machine...

NightOwl is the resident bootable cd/dvd guru, but he's on vacation this week. Not sure if anyone else can help while he's gone.

Have you seen his guide?

Ya i have read his guide, it is very good i may add Cheesy but it does not mention anything about auto loading the spanned images within the ghosting process Sad

Looks like you made the image to HDD initially--if both files are in the same directory together, I don't know why Ghost doesn't automatically see the next file in the image set.

As a possible work-around--if you have a compatible optical burner--you could boot to DOS, and have Ghost create your image set directly to optical media--then use that image set to create your restore DVD--does that image set allow for automatic spanning to the next file in the image set?

I backup my PC in dos, then copy all the ghost spanned files to the same folder on my hard drive.

Then open the first .gho file with "Ghostexp.exe".

Then I save it as larger spanned images.
