Re: restore ghost image to another computer

I am waiting for an answer to this as well. I have been using an old Ghost disk from a very early version. It worked like a charm all the way up to Windows XP, but now with Vista and 7, I can;t get them to work and I can't get the Ghost 15 recovery disk to restore to a different computer. It seems to work, and then it asks for the recovery CD, which I eblieve is already in the drive.

The only thing I can think of is that the recovery CD is specific to each machine and that you can;t use one image for many computer......which is very upsetting.

I hope I am wrong and that there is a way to get it done.

Hi chomchom,

Welcome to the forum. Please expand on what you want to accomplish. Is your intent to restore your Ghost image to a different computer as a replacement for your previous system?

In short, yes Ghost can restore to a computer system with different hardware or to the same computer with a new hard drive.

Please see this thread which I authored for more details.

Please ask specific questions so that I can assist further.

Thanks

Allen
