Where I work, We do a lot of Ghosting for clients. For a while (before 2004) we were able to make Ghost Boot CD's from Bootable Ghost Floppys, but recently the Ghost CDs we have been making (for the past 3 months or so) haven't worked . . . When you turn on the computer with the CD in it, it shows like 4-5 symbols and just hangs there . . .

I am not sure if has something to do with the new machine's Bios or not, but its been this way for IBM T-40's and Compaq small form and large form machines . . . Latest problem has been an HP d220m . . . One of our sales guys sold a bunch with out floppys, and now the customer is upset that they can't make a usable bootable CD to boot into ghost mode . . .

FYI . . . The T-40's and Compaq booted fine from the floppys, but once the bootable floppy was made into a bootable CD (using either Roxio or Nero) . . . that CD would only produce those symbols and hang there . . .

Has anyone heard of this and maybe a change I have to do in the Bios of the machines I am working on . . .??

You didn't say what version of Ghost your are using. I have been using Ghost 2003 with no problems on a series of IBM TP R31's. I make all of the CD's using Nero Express and have been using the 21 min mini CD-r's. Since you don't have this problem when not using a Bootable CD, I would check into the media that you are using. Was this changed recently ? and make sure that the media is compatible with your CD-Burning equipment.
