Does Ghost not make its own bootable media like Acronis TI does?

Yes but when in the back up thing ( which replaces windows boot record and boots its own thing so it can do its job )/

Last time i did this it took over my boot record and i had to reformat the pc(even recovery console would not work , fixboot,fixmbr)/

Use winimage to make a bootable image of your ghost floppy.

Use nero to burn the winimage ".ima" image as the boot code for a bootable cd.

Burn the CD.

If you backup in DOS you probably will lose any long file names that you have as DOS used the 8.3 file naming convention

Just food for thought
In the beginning there was the command line.

Have you looked into Acronis True Image? Very similar to ghost in its capabilities.

Do you use DriveImage XML ?
What about Windows Backup Utility ?

I've used DIXML to open Images and to backup a few machines across my network.

As for using it from a command prompt or even booting with it, I can't say as I have. But, you could possibly use an Ultimate Boot CD for Windows and load your network drivers when booting and use Drive Image XML from there to make an image of your system across your network.

Personally, I never liked the Windows Backup Utility.

Hmm
when i went to restore said cant do system drive...... so i have to download BartPE or UBCD ?


Cant be bothered with that.


Acronis True Image vs Ghost , which one ?


Acronis True Image i would reckon since Norton products are crap most of the time.
