GHOST Cant be run in DOS mode

Specs: Windows XP
Hi there,

Few days back i tried to make GHOST bootable dvd which boots up and automatically copy the image( on dvd) of my operating system to my first partition. It took my lot of time to compile that DVD and finally it boots and load mouse drivers and when it jumps to run the ghost command it diaplys a message that this program cant be run in DOS mode. Although i have used the same ghost.exe to create image. I dont know why this message appears. My autoexec.bat file is look like this..

mscdex.exe /d:nightowl /l:x /m:16 /v
echo Loading Ghost........
ghost.exe -clone,mode=restore,src=X:\myimage.gho,dst=1:1 -fx -sure

device=oakcdrom.sys /d:nightowl


Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in Advance.

Hi there,

I found the sloution of my problem which was simple. Actually i took image using ghost while being in windows so now i tested it in dos mode and it doesn't work there...

So i am now looking for GHOST.exe for DOS.

Your config.sys has no memory management ie. no himem.sys or anything.

Have you googled ghost boot image?
