    Norton Ghost from Boot CD?! HELP!

    Hi there

    Just installed and configured a Windows 2000 system for deployment, sysprep'd it, shut it down, then it occured to me that in order to use Norton Ghost 10.0 to backup a system, you have to run it from windows... or do you?

    How can I create a norton ghost image of my drive WITHOUT being in windows, because obviously now i've sysprep'd the machine, I cannot boot back into windows until I've made an image of the HD.

    Help!!

    Edit: Note booting from the CD only gives me options to RESTORE a previous backup.

    If you have Ghost on another PC:

    1) use the boot disk creator to make a set of boot disks/cd/usb stick/etc to boot off with the right drivers.
    2) manually run the ghostcast server and setup a image creation session
    3) boot of your boot disks and join the session
    3) start the session on the ghostcast server.

    You can download PDFs from the Symantec support website.

    Look for the Ghost Implentation Guide or something like that.
