How to Ghost install XP.GHO (USB Drive version)

Filed under: Guide — Tags: , , , , , , — oldnewdream @ 12:26 AM

Even heard of Symantec Ghost? It is almost similar to the previous ISO post, but it have much more useful feature.

Ghost file have huge compression and support scripting when unpack. It extension was GHO.

Ghost file is primary used to backup the whole disk/partition data and most common use to quick restore the Operating System.

I will show how to make a simple bootable USB Ghost Drive :)

  1. Refer back to my old post on how to make your USB Drive bootable –> http://oldnewdream.wordpress.com/2009/06/05/bootable-usb-drive/
  2. Once you have the bootable USB drive created, download this (http://www.mediafire.com/?dymyedxrkti)
  3. Insert the bootable USB Drive and run the Ghost.exe. (For Vista/Win7: Run with administrator right)
  4. Click Next (Alt+N if you can’t see Chinese) until this page:

Please select your USB Drive Letter. (should be auto select)

Press Next (Alt+N) and the require file will be copy the the USB Drive.

 

Now your USB Drive can boot and use Ghost software now :)

  • Copy the GHO file (in my case – EEE PC installation, YLMF.GHO from http://download.win4000.com/ylmf_ensp2_ye3.0.iso) into the Bootable USB Drive.
  • Change your computer BIOS (F2 or DEL) to set your first bootable device as the USB Drive.
    • (PS: EEE PC should set the Bootable HDD as USB Drive, Bootable Device as HDD and System installation as Started in BIOS)
  • Once the USB Drive boot, you should see Windows 98 boot up screen and a Menu will appear: (One-Key Ghost 11, One-Key Ghost 8, Ghost 8….)
  • Choose Ghost 11.2 (Should be the 3rd option)
  • The system will boot into Ghost and you can now load the Disk with your GHO image.
  • Select Load –> Disk –> From Image, and choose the YLMF.GHO file just now in your USB Drive.
  • Press continues (If disk size mismatch, Ghost will auto correct it).
  • The system will prompt to reset computer once done. Unplug the USB Drive and go back in BIOS to set HDD as the first boot device (EEE PC set OS Installation as Finish)
  • YLMF.GHO have automated Drive installation script, press integrated button and it will do the rest :)
  • Restart your computer once again, and tada, you got a fresh new Windows XP SP2 with all driver and Microsoft Office install :D

  7. Great write up! Thanks a ton!

    Had Asus WinXP recovery disc for my EEEPC, but didn’t realize was not a windows install disc initially. Once I realized it had a .gho image I knew there must be an easier way! Thankfully you told me how to do it! THANKS!

  12. Sir i would like to ask you that, can we install WINDOWS7 also by this bootable drive or not..?
    and another thing that i have noticed that when we install operating system through Bootable pen drive, there are two, three option you need to select, of we select ghost 11.2, that we prompted two XP installation, but if we dont select any option in the beginning win98 starts automatically…i mean i want if we insert a bootable USB only XP should boot…
    Just tell me how can i do that…?
