Creating a Bootable DVD Using Symantec Ghost Solution Suite v1.1
I am trying to use Symantec Ghost Solution Suite v1.1 to deploy Windows XP Pro SP2 to several machines. I want to make the installation automatic (eliminate any user input during the restore process). I also want the image file and the ghost.exe file to reside on a single DVD.
I used the Microsoft Sysprep tool to remove the SID from the system prior to creating the image. I am also using an answer file (.inf) file to prevent the user from needing to answer questions during the Microsoft Mini-setup.
I want to create a boot floppy that contains a standard boot floppy disk and the ghost.exe executable. I noticed that the Ghost Solution Suite v1.1 ghost.exe file is about 1.37MB. Since the ghost.exe file is so large I can not fit this file on a Windows boot floppy. I noticed that this was not the case when using Ghost 2003. In Ghost 2003 the ghost.exe file was about 0.98MB. Using the Ghost 2003 executable I am able to create a boot disk and then copy the Ghost 2003 ghost.exe file on the same floppy. I then use this floppy when the Ghost program prompts me to insert a floppy when creating a bootable DVD. So I can achieve my goal of a single bootable DVD goal using Ghost 2003 but not with Ghost Solution Suite v1.1. I need to get this to work with Ghost Solution Suite since this will be used in a corporate environment.
My question is:
1.Does anyone know a way that I can create a single bootable DVD with two bootable floppy disks (the first with MS or PC DOS and the second with the ghost.exe)?
