With the standard iomega usb driver that comes with ghost ghost only sees the external USB drive and not the internal ide – I suspect this is because of the way ghost derives the drive id. It contains the following: Just wanted to let you know that I got the DOS boot disk to work. Lest anyone think I’m making problems for myself, I will say that having more than one partition saved me from losing important data when I accidently clobbered one of the partitions by choosing the wrong drive. Everything else loads fine. I will go thorugh it once or twice more and try to figure out what I am confused on.

I thought it might be worth mentioning how I created my bootable CD.


You could try hooking it up to another system to see if you can save images past the current GB limit you are having–how many GB’s will your Aspu HDD hold before you start having the behavior problems? That’s why labeling the partitions with unique labels can be helpful.

Now, as much as I’m not aspu of Windoze Massive Excrement, let’s use it to start with. I hope someone with more smarts than me will pick up the gauntlet and eventually make it work.


CDs are another example of this, with the ISO filesystem. I am getting a “invalid boot diskette” when ri1000 loads the cd-rom. On my system, if the ‘path’ statement points to both of the optical drives, I get a ‘CDR Now I know what you mean.

USB for Dos? – FreeDos and Dos –

Dude, if you don’t do what I ask you to do, I’m am not going to waste any more time on your problem! I then removed some thirtyodd gigs in WinXP and lo and behold ghost could work with the disk again.

You will now load Ghost and you do not have to rely on the ‘complex’ config. Barts PE did not quite work for me This means that the CD-RW has not been burned with a proper boot sector image–so it’s not being recognized during boot as a bootable CD. NightOwl wrote on Sep 17 that 1: So, you are booting from the same floppy disk–standard Ghost boot disk–but, the boot process hangs if your USB HDD has a Ghost image file on it, and is not a clone of another HDD from another system.

This might be a stupid question, but I have just spent 3 hours problem solving a stupid mistake, but yet I learnt something from it too. Mon Jan 23 Yes the hard drive is powered on and up to speed.


Hah, Finally I have managed But I have no access to the memory card until the drivers are first loaded from floppy or bootable CD. Here is my configuration with drives etc.: Easy CD creator gives you the option of selecting “Hard drive emulation” in addition to floppy emulation when you create a bootable CD as NightOwl outlined above. Then isolinux on my usb-memory made with Sardu.

Having two external HDDs of such capactity 4 partitions all roughly GB there is a lot freedom for me explore more efficeint storage practices. HDD driver in it’s subdir as well.

Took me 10 hours to work that out! I modified the config.

See if this works: You only have the option of: May be causing a conflict! Strange, as the command. Many thanks for such a great post.

Sorry if this is covered in the norton ghost guide or somewhere else. I don’t know about the BIOS yet Long as we don’t lose actually posts, I guess it’s not a major problem.
