I am just in the process of producing a (ghost) image on a Samsung p500. This is for our student Higher Education courses at our college. What came to mind was that i have never seen a post that specifies the features of a good (ghost) image. Im a trainee Helpdesk Engineer at the moment so im sure my images could be improved
Using Norton Ghost 9 and Acronis TrueImage 11 on Windows XP service pack 3. Disk cacheing is turned off on all drives and external Drive S is set optimized for quick removal.

I can't make a good MS-DOS startup disk (for BIOS flashing) from XP SP2.I select the "Make an MS-DOS startup disk" from the Format dialog.Sometimes it gives up without a warning (i.e. the progress bar resets itself and the "Start" button goes active again). Sometimes it completes with a success message. However the disks never boot. I get the following messages from the BIOS (abbreviated a bit!): Looking for boot record on floppy... OK I've tried with a least 7 different floppy disks, all with the same result. Does anyone have any idea what I can do to get it to work? I've also tried to make a MS-DOS boot disk on a Windows 2000 machine by downloading some freeware, but this does not work. I think the floppy drive is OK because I can boot from a Linux floppy disk (memtest86).
I'm running Windows XP Home Edition with SP2 on a Compaq Presario S4100NX and I seem to have a problem with the Windows speed. It's not my internet, I have a fast connection and FF runs very fast and smootly for me. It's like typical Windows stuff. When I open up my Documents folder even when I'm not running much else, it takes long to load. When I open up a program, it takes much too long. I open up a MSWord document, it takes too long. Everything seems slow minus the internet. I don't think it is adware/viruses/trojans or anything as I appear clean and my hardware is in fine condition. Maybe my computer is a bit old? Maybe I have too many processes or programs? I'm not really sure what it is but I'd just like to make my PC run faster.
When I try and drag an image off of my CF or any other card, I get ghost lines that trail the images into My Pictures. They dissappear if I minimize the screen and then re-maximize it. Just downloaded updated Nvida Video drivers. I have Windows XP Prof. with Service Pack 1
I am having this odd graphics glitch on my desktop after I recovered the OS from a system32 file corruption. I used the recovery console to repair the corrupted .dll file, and everything is working properly now except that every once in a while when I right click to bring up an options window on anything (desktop or program icon) and then left click on one of the available options, a ghost image of the option I clicked will remain on the desktop. It doenst interfere with program functionality, but is just more of an eyesore. I have updated all my drivers I can think of and run scandisk on the RAID setup.
I've created a Norton Ghost (v10.0) image of my winxp os disk. Whan I want to do is to make it to a bootable dvd, so whenever I want to reinstall it all I need is to boot from the ghost image and it recovers my os partition. But I can't figure out how to do that. the files I've got from Norton Ghost: winxp_image.v2i NG Recovery Point Storage.ini computer_name.sv2i
I am trying to clone my work machine to use on a dual boot system on my new machine. My old works machine has to run win 98 for some of the works programs to be able to run. When I use ghost 2003 and try to clone to an external drive it goes ok but does not show up as a ghost image there fore cannot restore on new machine partition running win 98. What am I doing wrong.
I need to transfer data, settings and programs from one notebook to another. Should I expect trouble if I make a ghost image of the hard drive on the original notebook, image it on to the new notebook and install all the drivers for the new notebook? There are a few large programs and alot of critical data and settings, so if this method works, I would like to do it this way. The old notebook will have Mandrake installed, so the XP license will continue to only be used on one computer.
I'm interested in creating images for my XP workstations, however I would like to maintain 1 images for multiple machines. Does anyone know of any process of slipstreaming, applications such as Office, IE, ...etc into an XP install? Or how about using Ghost to create 1 image that can be applied to machines with different hardware configurations
solution to a System Restore that will no longer do so on my pooter a two year old XP Home sp2. Used to, doesn't now and used so rarely don't know what might have caused the problem. I was able to complete "cured" the problem-still no Sys Restore. So began to try a different approach to recover in time of problem. But have become confused about which is the better approach. Something like Go Back or something like Ghost or Acronis True Image. I am not locked into any of those-but they seem to be most often mentioned.
i created a norton ghost image of a machine, which i deployed onto a new pc. my problem is that when i go to run windows update, it runs through the process, finds a lot of updates, but then fails to run the update. the pc i took the image off would have had the latest updates, but on the new pc it looks like the windows update wont work.
I have been in the recovery console, I have tried making a winpe boot disk "Failed due to errors" tried fixing the MBR, even tried to connect to it remote with regedit to make some changes in the registry with out success. I have even installed another copy of win xp on another drive and booted the system up with the 250gig in it and changed the drive letter in there. After taking the one drive out and booting with the 250gig it still has a letter of "C:" and still the same login loop.
I did I make a ghost image of my xp system (7 gigs), and I want to use that image to install on 2 other systems.BUT,as you know xp takes an image your system so you can not put ehe hard drive into another ssystem and have it work. I install in on to a different system, and in took great(installed with on problems) but know as soon as I restart I can here it but it goes driectly to the safe mode,last best configuration,start window normal screen.

I have Windows XP with SP2 formatted to NFTS. My Ghost program is Ghost 2003. I have been using this program for a number of years now with good results Ghosting the entire C Drive onto my slave drive that is formatted to FAT32. I now find that the slave is getting rather full and now need to Ghost the C Drive image onto and external hard drive.
I have XP Home on my computer and am useing XP's backup program and system restore to keep out of trouble but after reading alot of post on this newsgroup I have decided I need a better way to back up my OS. I would like to know which is the best and easiest to use Acronis True Image or Symantec's Norton Ghost
I did a ghost image of my C-Drive as a FAT32 using Nortons Ghost. I have since converted the C-Drive to NTFS. Will this ghost image still work OK if I need to restore my operating system (Windows XP Pro)?
I have two hard drives connected to my system. I will refer to them as A and B. I had previously taken a Ghost image of drive A and wanted to restore this image to the drive. However, both the drive were connected to the system when the restore occurred and the image got restored to drive B. Hence I have lost the data I had on drive B. The operating system in use is Windows XP. The version of Ghost used is Norton Ghost 2001
tell me how to make an image (for disaster recovery purposes) on DVDs (not on CDs) using Acronis True Image 8?.I have studied the user's guide and researched on the web, but I cannot figure out how to do it. I have Windows XP Media Center and a brand new HP Pavillion with a LightScribe DVD writer and Nero Ultra 6 (which does have the ability to write UDF DVDs)I need to install many things on my computer so I can get back to work, but first I want to have a good image of Drive C before I do. (I already installed the additional hardware and basic software that I use).
I have been searching the internet for an answer to my question and unable to do so. What I want to do is make a bootable backup image that will self install without windows in case of an operating system failure where windows is unavailable. I want to image my C drive and make it so I can boot from CDR or DVDR and have it format the drive and reinstall my backup identical to the original. A long time ago I saw this done with Symantec Ghost on a job I was on but have no idea how to accomplish the task myself. I was wondering if there is perhaps a better software out there now for making a total self restoring image of your haed drive such as this.
I have just installed Windows XP SP3 in my computer. Everything is normal except when i browse a folder that has image files (at least .jpg). It makes thw windows explorer hangs (stop responding) and i have to end it then restart it with task manager.
