Ghost 15 - More questions
Can someone please answer these questions:
1) One of the reasons I was forced to switch to Ghost15 was the fact that my Toshiba laptop has a normal Phoenix BIOS which prevents it from recognizing my WD 3 TeraByte External USB HDD.
This is because my BIOS does not support UEFI.
UEFI allows HDDs with more than 2,19TB to be used as primary storage (if using 64bit operative systems and GPT partitions).
In my case when I call the BIOS BBS popup screen I get no WD 3TB drive boot option (although my 1TB Iomega external USB HDD gets perfectly recognized in the same computer and I can even use it inside Ghost 11.5.1).
That means I cannot use my WD 3TB USB HDD drive with Ghost v11.5.1 (because the BIOS and Ghost 11.5.1 don't even "see" the drive).
Note: I'm using MS Windows 7 32bit OS, since I don't intend to use the WD 3TB USB HDD drive as primary, but as secondary storage. And once you're inside 32bit Windows, the 3TB drive is perfectly usable.
Primary tests performed on my system seem to prove that even Ghost v15.0 Custom Recovery CD (which I created), recognizes the WD 3TB drive (and it's full 3TB capacity).
So the question is...
Can I use my WD 3TB drive with Ghost v15.0 and it's Recovery CD?
Does Ghost v15.0 support UEFI and/or 3TeraByte drives (or bigger)?
2) Since Ghost 15.0 Recovery Disc seems to use some sort of Windows PE, does that make a system recovery more vulnerable to virus execution? For example is Windows PE capable of executing an already existing virus on the HDD to-be-recovered drive (and therefore infecting the HDD with the intact/clean recovery image)?
3) By using the Recovery CD, if I restore a clean image to an infected destination drive, will the infected destination drive be overwritten and therefore cleaned?
