    Re: How to make Ghost of Win XP

    Which imaging product are you using?

    Process is generally:
    Boot into imaging software
    Select partition or drive to image
    Select target location
    Select options (compression etc)
    Wait for image to be created
    Reboot back into OS

      By "killing" it with 3 ltr of acetone

      On a more serious note, asking returns quite a lot of step by step guides.

        Of course some would argue it already IS a ghost

        Thermite is a possible alternative to the acetone

          Is it possible to make by Win XP?

          or only Win 98 can make Ghost?

            You CANNOT ghost an operating system without booting into some other environment -- it doesnt really matter what this is as it will be supplied by the vendors of the imaging software.

              Are you using Ghost as a generis term for a copy of a software installed HDD or are you using the Symantec application called Ghost.

              Your terminology along with your info limited posts are confusing.

                  OK -- I've always booted off an Acronis CD to do this -- other partitions, yes, but never managed to ghost the OS partition from a running OS

                  Time for me to upgrade my version, I think....

                    Tom,

                    I know true image server has done it for a while and now true image home 2010 can do the same. Good stuff!

                      I have gone the open source approach, i use partimage, you can download a system rescue cd which also bundles aditional tools.

                      You can further research by going to www.partimage.org the have good step by step instructions, hope this helps.
