First, Happy New Year to y'all!!!!!
What I need help on is a batch file that I can put on a floppy that can
execute a Ghost.exe DOS file that is on the G:\ Drive.
A little background:
1. I've been using Ghost since version 5 back in 1995.
2. I've always used a Ghost boot floppy with an Autoexec.bat file
to do my bidding.
3. When Ghost 2003 came out, I could not use it with an Autoexec.bat
file because I did not want to "Mark" my HDD, just too "Big Brotherish"
4. I then got a hold of Ghost Corporate v7.5 and THAT worked great with
my Ghost floppy sets to:
Make to HDD
Make to CD
Make to HDD And CD
CRC Check HDD Image
CRC Check CD Image
Restore From HDD
Restore From CD
Whatever I wanted to do, I just popped in the appropriate floppy and
turned my computer on and Ghost did its thing.
The above worked with my Windows 98SE box, but my new Windows 7
box doesn't "play nice" with Ghost Corporate v7.5 but is OK with
Ghost v11.5. BUT, v11.5 is 2262 KB's so I'm FORCED to go the
"Bootable CD" or "Bootable USB" Thumb Drive route.
I just want to keep it via floppies!
This is how I'm presently set up on my 98SE box for making
an image file of C:, putting it on my HDD and then CRC checking the
GhostCE.exe -clone,mode=pdump,src=1:1,dst=G:\01_Ghost\Newest.gho -z3 -fx -sure
GhostCE.exe -chkimg,G:\01_Ghost\Newest.gho -sure
Soooo, what I want to do is put the Ghost v11.5 DOS exe in
a folder on the G:\ Drive and have the boot floppy run an Autoexec.bat
file to go to it and do what I want it to do, be it Make to HDD or CRC
Check CD Image, etc...
The folder I made is G:\!-Ghost and I named the Ghost file
Can anyone come up with a batch file to give me joy????
Thanks in advance.
