Running and installing Norton Ghost GHO and GHS files

May 7, 2012 at 08:41:45
Specs: Windows
I was given two files, filename.gho and filename.ghs, to install an earlier backup of a windows partition on a mac mini. I partitioned the mac mini, installed windows and bought and installed Norton Ghost but I can't seem to figure out how to restore this backup. Norton Ghost doesn't see to recognize the file type but I was told that this was all that I needed.

What do I need to do to reinstall this back up? Please help.

In addition to the above information if the image was not created on identical hardware/software, it may not work.

GHO file is the main image file, created with Norton Ghost.
GHS files are files that belongs to the main image (GHO).
There may be more than one GHS file belonging to the GHO file and you need the complete set of files, to restore the image to the computer.

You also need a version of Norton Ghost of the same version or newer.
Normally a newer version also supports the images created by older Ghost versions.
