Norton Ghost 2003: Cant boot XP after creating system disk file image?
I've installed ghost 2003 with the aim to using it as a backup system
for my system disk. My system disk has 2 patrtitions both NFTS. My
backup disk was an external NFTS drive connected through USB.
After following the tutorials, I when about creating the file image of
my disk as follows:
1) Started ghost and went about selecting the drive to ghost, the
destination (i.e thr' usb), and the location of image file on the
2) Ghost then booted (via the floppy) into dos mode. Again followed the
instructions and selected the location of the image. The ...Are "disk images" disk images or not?
I have seen the question "What are disk images" answered numerous times
with the assurance that they are exact sector-by-sector copies of real
physical disks. But my own eyes seem to contradict that apparently
Disregarding the instant .dmg "images" which can be cobbled together in
folders on the desktop, and concentrating on sincere attempts to create
real images of real physical disks with Disk Utility, if .dmg's are real
sector-by-sector copies, how come they shrink in size when files are
deleted from their source-devices to make the "images&quo...Creating a A disk Image

I'm about to reinstall Solaris 9 completely on our server. Once
it is done, and before putting the system back online, is it
possible to create an image of the system, as it will be configured,
that I could put on CDs or DVD and from which it would be possible
to boot the machine ? How do I proceed ?

A quick question regarding system disks:
If you had a machine with 2 SCSI disks (one 18GB one 70GB)
which would you use as the system disk?
Would you put all the software on the 70GB disk, along with the user
or put the minimum on the system disk and use the larger disk for
and user files (email etc.)

To backup my workstation drive onto my server, I wanted to have the
server mount the workstation's drive over AFP and then use the disk
utility to create a local (to the server) .dmg file (with compression on).
The server had no problems mounting the desktop's drive with AFP. But
Disk Utility did not show that drive in the list of drives.
Is this an architectural/design restriction, or would Disk Util on the
server be able to manipulate the desktop's disk if I enabled "root" on
the desktop and used "root" credentials to mount the disk over AFP ?

I have a Sony Vaio VGN-AR11M laptop which is pre installed with Windows
Because of the preinstall, it also has loads of app that I do not want.
Rather than uninstalling these, I would rather do a clean install of
MCE but seeing as sony did not give me disks, I have to use their slow
I would like to know if anyone has managed to create an install disk
from the image that sony provide - less any rubbish...
Installing XP pro makes no use of the TV tuner and MCE as a whole. It
also makes no use of the extra buttons etc on the machine.
Any ideas / Help?
C...Creating a Restore Disk Image
I have been having some serious problems with my Mac lately which have
indicated a possible malware infection. I recently "rebuilt" my system
(in other words, re-installed the OS and such), then tried to create a
disk image of my entire hard drive so I wouldn't have to download the
OS (and other software) updates again. I intended to use this disk
image to restore my entire system files (or my Hard Drive) every time I
restart my Mac. After finding that the Disk Utility will not
succesfully create a disk image of the Hard Drive, I contacted Apple
for assistance and they are now t...How to create an image of my hard disk

...Segmenting disk images with hdiutil
does someone happen to know what the options -firstSegmentSize and
-restricted are good for exactly? I'm trying to segment a large disk
image into chunks of exactly the same size in order to burn them onto a
bunch of DVDs. Somehow the segments always end up differing by a few
megabytes. Is there a way to prevent this? Might the two above options
be the magic key?
Thanks for your help,

I recently had malware so bad on my computer that I was forced to do a
clean install (Windows XP
Home). Since I have teenagers and this is likely to happen again, I
simply bought a new hard disk,
with the idea that once I had the new system set up and the personal
files copied, I would
make an image copy onto the old disk, so I could swap disks so I
didn't have to start from
absolute zero if this happened again, or if the disk crashes.
I used the disk copy utility in Ultimate Boot CD for Windows, and it
appeared to work - that is,
the disk appeared to be identical. However...TT030 system disks images

Thats what i have for my TT, they are Ibm format HD disks anyway, if your
interested ill zip them and send them to you, then you can extract them on a
PC. Im assuming you have a HD floppy drive . . . . .
"ttthirsty" <guigz2000@hotmail....Creating TRS80 disks from images
I don't know about for others, but this is a major stumbling block for
me now that I have started playing with my TRS80's again. I know there
are PC's that can read/write TRS80 format disks, but they are getting
rarer all the time. Heck, just finding a PC with a floppy controller
is getting hard. So, here's my real question. Is it possible for a
Tandy Color Computer to read/write TRS80 disks? Has anyone written
software to do this? I would think that with something as powerful
as OS/9 if the hardware was capable the software would not be that
difficult. Comments?...cannot create disk image (Panther)
