What ghost version are you using?

Are you trying to create a ghost image, or trying to restore a ghost image?

If ghost 2003, this opens a sort of dos like interface, a ghost cd will start that, then I think you can browse to where you have saved your image & go from there.

A thank you would be nice, if I have helped.

I used ghost 2003, but now I use Easus Todo backup free, it has the ability to back up to usb drives.

You were supposed to create disk either floppy or cd or usb while in Windows running ghost.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

If windows is working, you can run ghost to restore from another partition or hard disk.

If you create a ghost dvd, you can make the first disk bootable. Not many pc's have a floppy nowdays.

As I said, the ghost install disk is bootable.

As for usb, ghost 2003, has very poor support to restore/create to usb's. You can do it, but, it's a lot of farting about with usb dos drivers, & integrating them into a dvd.

A thank you would be nice, if I have helped.

I'm not sure it'll help with your situation, but in answer to your "how can I boot the system in dos?" use the F8 boot menu and choose 'safe mode with command prompt":

That's the closest you can get with XP and may be adequate.
