    If a machine has a bootable Ghost Partition, and windows xp installed - how can I get it to boot from the Ghost partition so that I can re-image it?

    I never heard of a "Bootable GHOST Partiton", and I used GHOST for years. Perhaps you can describe exactly what you have there...

    its exactly that. In the ghost boot disk creator it has the option to be able to create bootable partitions so that you can start the system into the ghost console without the need for disks.

    If I am not mistaken, you backed up your ghost image on a extended/logical partition. If so, you just run the backup from Ghost again and save it to the same partition that you have your current backup in. Once you verify the Ghost current Ghost image you can then delete the old one. As you are creating this new backup insert the floppy if needed when prompted to for emergency boot.
    Let me know if I understood your question correctly and if this is the answer you were looking for.

    Nope. Sorry.

    I first discovered this partition when I was installing XP from a CD onto one of the machines - in the partitions list when you are still in the 'blue dos based' part of the installation it has an 8MB partition called "Ghost Boot"
