My laptop got some virus etc. I have a clean ghost image of the laptop (.gho file) on another drive. I would like to restore the image, but Ghost wouldnt run on XP, it says it needs to be on DOS mode.

So i prepared a boot cd, but the boot cd would not read any drive other than itself.

How do I run Ghost now? All I need to do is, apply the clean ghost image back onto my laptop.

All help appreciated.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

What version of Ghost are you using? – Russ Warren Jan 29 '10 at 14:44

Er, this is really not the forum for this--rather, you should post at the sister site,

But in short, what you need is a Windows PE bootable disk, like BartPE, Reatogo, or UBCD for Windows (this last one is probably the easiest).

Ghost can create a boot disk that runs itself. There must be Create a Rescue Disk menu item somewhere in the program.
