There are known issues with ghosting a box that uses the grub bootloader. Check out the KB @ symantec.com. We did have success using a sector by sector copy.

I have gotten my ghost image working!

It's working!! Between you guys, a post from another forum, and some experimenting I've gotten it to boot again!

For anyone else that has this problem this is what I did.

I made a Linux boot disk on another working system:
(if necessary unmount the floppy: umount /dev/fdo)
mkbootdisk 2.4.21-0.13mdk (the numbers correspond to your kernel version, I found the correct version number in /lib/modules)

Boot the problem system with the boot floppy. Once you have booted, go into the terminal as root or use the "super user" terminal and run: /sbin/lilo

That's it!! You should be able to boot from your hard drive again!

Thanks again everyone for your help!

does anyone know if you can use the dd command to copy a hard drive in Linux?

You can use dd but, the hard drives must be the exact same geometry.

Does any have experience using Symantec (Norton) 7.5 to ghost Linux 8.0?

Hi:

We used to use Symantec (Norton) ghost 7.5 to ghost Linux 7.2, everything was fine, i.e. use the bootdisk to boot after ghosting, once the command prompt is back enter "/sbin/lilo.

But after we upgrading to Linux 8.0, it's not so easy.

Does any have experience using Symantec (Norton) 7.5 to ghost Linux 8.0?

If so, could you share your experience?

Thanks,

Dwandy
