Hi, it depends on what version of ghost you have to get a tutorial. You dont need dos you need to know how to use sysprep.

Is your product also called Norton Save & Restore?
NSR is sometimes called Norton Ghost 11 because it's the next product released by Symantec that contains a copy of Ghost, following Norton Ghost 10.

Here's a user guide for Norton Ghost v10, in pdf format.

the version of DOS it shows that is a DR-DOS 7.03 I don't know if this is the right version ..I thought it was MS-DOS version 5 since that's the one that I choose to download..anyways..my usb flash was on Drive F: so I went to Drive F: as soon as I type
ghost ..the command did not work Ghost didn't came out it gave an error ...Now I don't know if I have all the files from Ghots, because I got this software from work and I copie the software in al folder and save it to my usb flash. I don't know
if I copy the right folder and that's why is not working in DOS correctly..Or the bootdisk that I download is not the correct one..I'm confused now :trumpet: Help pleaseeee :flowers:

Monty..or anybody else..before I do the SYSPREP I have a question..reading the instructions on how to do the SYSPREP
I notice that the instructions are for Corp. the PC that I have its my own system..it doesn't matter if it your own pc or a Corp. PC you still have to do the SYSPREP before you image it?? ......I'm sorry to ask so many question but I don't make any more
mistake.

Thank you!
