I remember when my family bought a Compaq computer back in 1999 it came with a rescue CD. Essentially a fully automatic Ghost backup.
Now it am trying to create such a disc but of course I could not fit all my useful programs on 1 CD, I need it on 1 DVD. However I have not found any way to create a bootable DVD with the ability to restore my ghost image.
I have no DVD-writer in my computer so I cannot select DVD-writer as a target when doing the backup. I dont know if selecting DVD-writer would mean the program (norton ghost) would add booting information but I doubt it. Anyway I cannot use that option. I need to write to a file on my D: partition which I will later transfer and burn on another PC.
I also do not want to use diskettes to boot as diskettes break and get lost by themselves.
So how would I go about to create a bootable and (almost) automatic recovery DVD? If Compaq could do it in 1999 surely I would be able to do it also.
