The last version of ghost.exe included in Ghost 2003 was/is build 793.

I think the current DOS *ghost.exe* that comes with Ghost Solution Suite will still fit on a single floppy--but, you have to have a two floppy disk boot set--the first disk for holding the DOS boot files and the second disk has the *ghost.exe*.  So you boot from the first disk, and then exchange out with the second disk to run the Ghost program.  I think the version number is 11.5xx.

The last version of the corporate Ghost program that would allow for the basic DOS boot files plus the *ghost.exe* to be on a single floppy was v7.5x--that version was the equivalent to the Ghost 2003 version.

I think since version 8.xx and above, as far as the corporate versions are concerned, require the two floppy disk boot set.

Boy, that version number doesn't ring a bell!  Can you ask where that is coming from?

It looks like a WinXP build number.

In my own experience, it was Ghost 2003, if you want that DOS Boot Floppy to be bootable.
It works great for XP but has difficulty backing up the newer boot sector on W7 and up.

The oldest DOS version of Ghost that will back up Win-7,8 and Win-8.1 is Ghost 11.5.
But, it's too large to fit on a single 3.5" floppy disk, but works great on a flash drive and/or CD.

Cheers Mate!
Cool
