    Norton Ghost 11

    Hi all,

    Routing through my draws I found my old disc with Symantec Ghost 11 on it. Bought this years and years ago.

    However - it's doing a good job of imaging two different machines with Windows 8 Pro. I use WDS mainly but just for the fun of it I thought I'd have a go with ghost. Very Nostalgic.


    Haven't used this in years!!!

    You may come unstuck if you have UEFI mode enabled with Windows 8. Something about it Ghost doesn't like (happy to be proved wrong). I posted some stuff about it on here a couple of months ago and the method I used to get it working....

    Heres how I did it:

    Install Windows 8.1 - configure with everything, install apps etc.
    Reboot and use the Symantec Ghost Boot CD and Go to Ghostcast
    Open up GhostSRV and create a new session, select where you want to dump your image and give it a name and click accept clients
    Input the session name into ghostcast and select which drive to capture image

    Same but on restoring image click Send once you've selected hard drive in GhostCast.

    And away it goes, Have done 3 or 4 different machines now and 1 laptop. All working with Windows 8.1.

    My BootCD is BartPE disc - customized with Ghost32.exe on the root partition. Just boot from the CD (or even from PXE/USB) and run Ghost32.exe and ghostcast from there.

    Is there anything to gain from having UEFI enabled? I took it off a machine I was working on so that it could boot from a CD, seems more trouble than it's worth.

    Not enabled here as I tried to install Linux on a blade server, all my problems were because UEFI was enabled, as soon as I turned it off in the BIOS everything worked and I could install. I believe I couldnt even run the Disc to install.

    I am using Ghost also for Linux images and it seems to work good, just imaged off a CentOS 6.4 drive and restored it to a desktop PC, aslong as the drive sizes are similar in size IE not smaller than the image it will work.
