    Restoring a Ghost image to a Windows partition

    Hi all,

    We have a few Macs at school and we use bootcamp with them. We also have a Vista Ghost image with all the software I would like to restore onto the Windows partition. I tried netbootdisk and it will not pick up an ip address from DHCP so I canít get into ghost, works fine on the PCís.

    Any ideas on how to get it on please?

    Thanks

    Sorry this disappeared from my subscribed threads!

    Not a Mac issue, but we had some Toshiba laptops from a feeder we had to image, and Ghost 8 refused point blank to work with the network cards.

    In the end I got frustrated a downloaded a trial of Ghost 12, installed it on the machine and created an image that way.

    You can re-image using the Ghost 12 CD, which uses the very nice Vista Pre-Installation Environment.

    The only real down side is I have to manually remove the Ghost software from the machine after re-imaging. It complains as it's a trial, and it could also cause issues for the end user.

    This may not work at all in your boot camp scenario, but it might be worth a punt.
