I am a long time Corporate Symantec Ghost user. I came across ATI one day and really liked the modern feel and interface. It is a far cry from having to make a Win98 boot disk and hope Ghost sees all of the drives, does not corrupt the image, and does not ask for a 3rd set of a spanned image that does not exist. Anyway, for my first real use of ATI I built a WinXP workstation, installed ATI (v10.0), and went to create bootable media. Right there is where I ran into problems. My XP image will be about 2G compressed so I had planned on creating a bootable DVD, sysprepping the image, rebooting, booting off of the DVD into ATI then imaging the HD to the DVD. This plan was relatively straight forward, or so I thought. It is 3hrs later and I am almost ready to go back to Ghost. Below is a list of problems: 1. Acronis would not burn the bootable image to the DVD. After a couple of failures, I gave up, wrote an ISO and burned the ISO to the DVD using Nero. 2. After booting off the DVD, not only could I not burn directly to the DVD, ATI did not even see my DVD drive. So I can only assume that once I do finally get the image onto the DVD, ATI will not allow me to restore from the DVD since it does not see it. 3. Since ATI does not see my DVD drive, it does not give me an option to save to it, so I will have to install a second HD in the system, boot from the bootable DVD, image the system disk to an archive folder on the second HD, then use Nero to burn the *.tib file as a second session on the bootable DVD and hope ATI sees it when I'm done. Needless to say, Ghost with all its faults, is nowhere near as painful as this. With Ghost all I would need to do is make a Win98 bootable floppy, add Ghost to it, boot off the floppy, then image the HD to the DVD. During the image process Ghost would let me add the bootable floppy to the DVD image. Below is some additional system information: ATI Version: 10.0 (Not sure of the build number the image is sysprepped I do not want to re-open it). DVD Drive: Memorex DVD+/-DLRWL16 D2 Workstation: Dell GX260 DVD Media: Verbatim DVD+R Notes: All I am trying to do is create emergency rescue media for the individuals that I am shipping this system to so that if the HD dies, it gets a virus, etc, they can quickly restore it to the point it was at when I shipped it to them. I do not need anything any fancier than an emergency restore DVD. It is looking like Ghost might be the answer.
