Won’t stop booting to PC DOS

I need a solution

I am working on and older PC with Ghost 2003. I know, but it’s an old computer. In the Ghost program in Windows, I selected what I wanted to image. The computer then rebooted into PC DOS but never fully launched Ghost. Now the computer will NOT boot back to Windows. 2 questions – How do I get it to boot back to Windows (and selcting “Skip Ghost DOS and boot into Windows doean’t work) and 2nd question, I have previously Ghosted boot drive I can use but I am scared it will try to boot to PC DOS as well. Is the “Boot to DOS” iset in the BIOS or something on the drive? Can I use the other boot disk without a problem?

Thank you all so much. This is a ral important computer and I need to get it running again as soon as I can.

Dell Latitude 7400

I need a solution

Anyone had luck using standalone ghost instances with a USB boot stick on Dell Latitude 7400? My WinPE instance hangs up and freezes when trying to load. I don’t even get as far as launching ghost. Just see a Windows logo, a loading circle at the bottom, then a flash and the machine freezes.

At first I was getting just a black screen so I loaded the graphics drivers for this model into my boot ISO. Now it shows display but freezes. Have I put too many drivers in and am just burning up all the ram before I get to the ghost app?

Ghost error during restoring

I need a solution

Good morning, Inside the company i work for we got many cnc siemens machines with a pc windows 7 and the ghost suite integrated. After a blackuot i made a backup of the 2 partitions contained inside the ssd and after that i tried to restore an old partition backup. Here i made an error, i pressed restore entire hdd and i choose the partition file. After 2 seconds i got an error from the ghost console. Now, i got the hdd without anything inside. I think the procedure canceled some configuration files but no real files. Windows does not start and during the boot up i only got a black screen. Do you know any way to try to recover the hdd?

Missing partition resize options

I need a solution

Hi guys,

We’re trying to update our win10 master and captured our customized installation. We don’t have any problem with the capture, no errors or warning. When I try to create a deployment task (using a copy of the one we use for our 1803 master), I can add the *.gho I’ve just created. But when I go to the advanced options for resizing partitions, none are listed (I should have 3 listed). The 3 partitions are created if I use the *.gho but I really need to resize them.

Does someone here ever encountered this problem ? What am I missing ? Thanks for your help !

Unable to deploy more than one unknown machines

I need a solution

Hi guys,

I already configured ghost solution suite, I can take images from pxe, deploy images to one machine. So I decided to deploy to several machines but for some reason for example if I run 5 machines Im getting this error “Restarting DHCP clilent service:  retry 1…” in 4 computers and only one runs after this one completes if I connect a new one same error “Restarting DHCP clilent service:  retry 1…” so I have to reboot the ghost server but still only one runs

The ghost server is a windows 2012 and is a virtual machine, the DCHP server is other virtual machine and the computers I want to deploy to are physical.

What am I missing?

Cant get Ghost64.exe to launch in WinPE

I need a solution

Hello all, 

We currently started purchasing Dell XPS 9570s and 9370s. We are running GSS 3 in a test VM before we put it into production and I am running into an issue that I cant figure out. I have pushed automation folders to the client PCs that I am trying to capture a backup image from. I can get them to boot into automation using a wait job and they are getting an IP from the DHCP server and they are mapping to the M: which is where we want the images to save. The issue is if I run an image job I cannot get ghost to launch, the PC will reboot back to windows. I even tried manually running a command to launch it by doing the following: M: cd ghost, and then ghostghost64.exe. When I do this 1 of 2 things happens, it will either reboot into windows 10 and take me to the login screen or it will sit there and do nothing. I been working with a gentlemen from Symantec and even he has run out of ideas. Just to bring everyone up to speed, Ive installed a clean copy of windows 10 pro on this machine and deleted all the factory Dell partitions. I would really like to get this into production soon, so any help is highly appreciated.

Not deployment images automatically from console to unknown computers.

I need a solution

Hi guys,

Ive being doing some research but believe I cant figure this thing out. I need to deploy almost 300 machines, these machines are new so not connected to the ghost server.

I configured a initial deployment with a deploy image but everytime a start a new machine I have to go the wizard the select disk and then select the image I want to deploy, I need to deploy these images automatically without any user intervention.

Am I missing something??

I was stuck in “calling custom actions” then I added these lines (cd ghost ghost64.exe) to the startup.bat but still I have to choose the image and follow a wizard, I know is not that long but I consider I have to do it 300 times.
