Norton Ghost 11.5 parameter?

I want to restore image to F: disk (name in OS) disk. I use Norton Ghost 11.5 (32):

 

Ghost32.exe -clone,mode=restore,src="E:\Softs\GhostWin7x86.GHO",dst=@OS:F:

 

But error: Distination Disk invalid (I think wrong at "@OS:F:)

Please help me!

Re: Norton Ghost 11.5 parameter?

If I remember correctly, destination is always Drive number : Partition number seperated with a colon :

For instance:

dst=2:1  would make the destination the second hard drive, first partition.

dest=1:1 would be first hard drive first partition.

 

When restoring a "whole disk" image rather than a partition you only need the drive number

dest=1  would restore the whole disk image onto the first hard drive regardless of how many partitions are in that image.

 

Just note that Ghost uses 1 for the first hard drive and that is technically wrong, windows uses HD0 as the first hard drive and Ghost uses 1.

 

I think I have some bookmarks for the switches but it's on my system at work and I will not be there until tomarrow.

meigyoku,

 

Make it easy for yourself. Run ghost32.exe from a WinPE. Use the GUI, not the command line.

I use command line to write a simple program. I read command help of Norton Ghost and see dst=@OS:Drive Letter. Can you explain about it?

Check page 544 of the Ghost Implementation Guide. (In the documentation folder of GSS 2.5).

 

Thats used for recovery in windows of an operating system to a mounted volume.

The "drive letter" is a variable, the rest does not change.

 

the example given is:

DST=@OS:D restores a partition to the mounted volume D:\.

 

edit- your example in the first post has an extra trailing :

You also would need an existing partition with the letter F

Re: Norton Ghost 11.5 parameter?

Are you running ghost32.exe from within Win7? To restore Win7?

I suggest you restore from a WinPE and change your command line. Avoid drive letters. Here is one that worked for me...

 

ghost32 -clone,mode=prestore,src=2:2\ghost.gho:1,dst=1:1 -fx -sure

Re: Norton Ghost 11.5 parameter?

I tried with Windows 7 PE. It's no successful.

Oh of couse, I know the way to use DST=4.1. But I know that Norton Ghost 11 suppost use OS name disk letter. Excuse me but are you in Symatec Group created this program? I want to know reason why we can not use @OS:name of disk letter parameter.
