    Have Ghost Boot CD that works on IDE CD drives. Have Win-7 box that doesn't like the CD drivers or the USB drivers. [Backing up to a USB HD 250GB.] Placed 'pause' statements after each command while testing & I'm getting no drive found, (referring to the CD), & "Invalid drive specification". Startup files are as follows & thanks for looking at this...
    [Files in CD's boot sector found at the bottom of this post.]

    [CONFIG.SYS]
    DEVICE=HIMEM.SYS /testmem:eek:ff
    DOS=HIGH,UMB
    DEVICE=EMM386.EXE NOEMS
    FILES=30
    BUFFERS=20

    DEVICE=cd1.SYS /D:CDROM

    rem DEVICE=cd1.SYS /D:CDROM /P:1f0,14
    rem DEVICE=cd1.SYS /D:CDROM /P:170,15
    rem DEVICE=cd1.SYS /D:CDROM /P:170,10
    rem DEVICE=cd1.SYS /D:CDROM /P:1e8,12
    rem DEVICE=cd1.SYS /D:CDROM /P:1e8,11
    rem DEVICE=cd1.SYS /D:CDROM /P:168,10
    rem DEVICE=cd1.SYS /D:CDROM /P:168,9

    DEVICEHIGH=MTMCDAI.SYS /D:CDROM

    DEVICE=uhci.exe
    DEVICE=ohci.exe
    LASTDRIVE=Z
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [AUTOEXEC.BAT]
    @echo off
    echo 1
    pause

    SET TZ=GHO+05:00
    MOUSE.COM
    LH MSCDEX.exe /D:CDROM /L:G
    echo Loading...
    cls

    echo 2
    pause

    echo Sets the prompt & path then Loads image task with parameters & launches image software.
    echo _

    PROMPT $t $d$_$p$g
    SET PATH=A:\;C:\;D:\;E:\;F:\

    echo 3
    pause

    echo Loading...
    G:\GHOST.exe -CLONE,mode=Create,src=1,dst=2 -Sure -Batch -z3
    echo Restart the computer. (Be sure to allow the restart process to begin
    echo before removing the CD from the CD Drive.)
    echo _
    pause

    REM shutdown /r /f /t 7

    REM GHREBOOT is not on floppy. Path statement must ensure accessability to file wherever placed.
    ghreboot.exe
    ________________________________________________________________________________________________

    io.sys
    mouse.com
    mouse.ini
    mscdex.exe
    msdos.sys

    I doubt very much that you will find drivers for DOS. The whole issue of USB drivers for DOS has been examined ad nauseam and no satisfactory, total solution was ever found before DOS went out of Windows in 2000.

    Use a 32-bit version of Ghost.
