Hello Newsgroup,

If I want to boot my pc with the original ghost2003 CD to restore an
image, what's the command I have to enter after the A:\ ?? appears?

On my PC I always use a floppy disk to boot into DOS, but on my laptop
I don't have a floppy drive, so I have to use the ghost cd.
But I get stuck each time because I don't know what command I have to
enter after the A:\

Can anybody help me?

Thanks
jace

Thanks, but what if I want to restore an image from another HDD(not
from a bootable CD/DVD) to a PC/Laptop which does NOT have a floppy
drive? How do I get to the Ghost interface in DOS?

Of course, the Gost2003 boot wizard has an option to create bootable
CD/DVD startup disk, but only on a 1.44MB floppy. What I need is a
bootable CD, because modern Laptops don't have a floppy drive.

The original Ghost2003 is also bootable, isn't it?
But at some point, after the A:\ I need to enter a command. I
tried.ghost.exe but it didn't work.

Thanks
Jace

This might be worth reading:

CD/DVD Startup Disk with Ghost
The Ghost Boot Wizard in Symantec Ghost 8.x and Norton Ghost 2003 has as option to
create a CD/DVD Startup Disk with Ghost. This bootable floppy disk includes generic
CD/DVD ROM drivers.
