Recently I made the mistake, which I’ll do never again, of starting to create a Ghost image using Ghost 2003 without creating the disaster recovery disk which I’ve don a dozen or so times without incident. However, this time I got “Missing OS” message instead of DR DOS starting Ghost like it normally does when creating Ghost image. I’d made a bootable Ghost CD and ran Ghost from it to try to restore image to partition from a previous image where Ghost showed the image and prompted to select destination to restore image, but all partitions were grayed out and not selectable. I bit the bullet and reinstalled Windows and all apps from scratch.
Does anybody know why all destination partitions were grayed out and whether there’s a solution for this problem? Would running Ghost from the CD to create the partition that was attempted to be restored have averted this problem? What good is an imaging program if an image can’t be restored due to destination to restore to being non selectable?
