Need help automating WinPE Ghost recovery
I'm still running Symantec Ghost Solution Suite 11.5. I've been creating bootable DOS USB sticks for re-imaging my computer using ghost.exe, via the Symantec Ghost Boot Wizard.
Because it's DOS, its terribly slow, but I do have it scripted such that I just plug the stick in, set the USB stick as the boot device, and the rest is automatic.
In an attempt to speed up the re-imaging process, I started playing with WinPE. I am able to create a bootable USB stick, boot into a WinPE environment, and have the ghost32.exe launch automatically. BUT, I still have to select the image file, and the destination disk manually. The speed is majorly improved (reduced imaging time from 35 min to 9)
I attempted to automate the image file selection by modifying the start.bat file in the ghost folder of the USB stick, but no luck. So, here I am asking for your advice!
With DOS, I would just add the following to my autoexec.bat file, and the system would automatically re-image my HDD:
GHOST.EXE -clone,mode=restore,src=C:\ghost\win7recovery1.gho,dst=2 -sure
Are there any ghost gurus out there that can point me in the right direction to get the same effect from a WinPE boot?
