Does the Ghost12 support Windows 8.1 ?

Created: 11 Nov 2013 | 4 comments

I'm checking the copy of Windows 8.1.

It looks good to copy them using Ghost12.

Does Ghost12 support to deploy Windows 8.1?

I contacted reseller but they didn't have the solution.

Symantec provides Ghost 2.5.1fix.

I want to deploy the Windows8.1 computers using Ghost 2.5.1fix.

I  could copy them using the Windows8.1 computers.

But I want to know Symantec supports deployment of Windows8.1.

patch binaries that are provided with this GSS 2.5.1 fix do not support 32-bit UEFI computers.

List of ghost patched binaries are as follows:

  • Ghost64.exe (
  • Gdisk64.exe  (
  • GhConfig64.exe  (
  • DeployAnywhere64.exe  (
  • DriverManager64.exe  (
  • GhostExp64.exe  (

It is too soon after the release of Windows 8.1 for Symantec to offer support. It is only very recently that Win 8 support was provided so I would expect official 8.1 support in the next year or two based on past performance.  Your best way forward is to try the current code yourself and see if it works in your environment and proceed from there.

If your issue has been solved, please use the "Mark as Solution" link on the most relevant thread.

Hey hidehide,

Please see this document I wrote a few months ago... These steps can now be adapted to work with Altiris Deployment Solution 6.9 SP6 as well.  I can verify that this also works with Windows 8.1 Images. Let me know if this helps you?
