The problem: I can’t manage to create a backup from my c:\ drive.
This is what I’ve done so far:
- using the wizard
-> outcome: during boot, the pc fails to get through the ghost-dos screens (simply hangs)
-> outcome: used about 20 different bootdisks, including or excluding scsi/usb/firewire drivers, with win95(B) or win98 bootdiskfiles, but to no avail. I managed to boot the dos-system, but ghost.exe refuses to load (blue startup screen doesn’t go away, pc does nothing)
What would be the easiest way to create the image? I’ve used ghost a lot in the past, when it was still possible to create an image from the c: drive in windows. But it seems that I can’t create a working bootdisk for my pc.
- USB floppy drive (works, since booting to dos works with some of the bootdisks)
- c: drive on adaptec scsi-adapter (the one that needs the backup)
- a bunch of other harddrives on several adapters, that should not interfere because they are not needed for the backup process (although somehow I think, that the ghost wizard is designed for rather “simple” pc’s that boot from IDE)
