>> "does the HP integrety server rx2660 support ghost ?"

The question should be

does ghost support the server?

You need a **ia64** boot disk - no idea if ghost can do this.

Hope this helps!

Re: Boot from ghost CD

From what (server/os) did you create your ghost cd?

Re: Boot from ghost CD

From an ia64 system?

I don't think ghost supports ia64 systems, but I'm not sure.

Your workaround could be to install win and restore your data from the image.


Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: Boot from ghost CD

why i want to use ghost for my ia64 server?

because their is a lot of setup done for windows 2003 and also many setup for software installed there , so the data is no important , the most important for us is the setup done .
a ghost or other similar solution will be the best.
thanks
Torsten.

Re: Boot from ghost CD

The question was not "why" but from what type of system you did pull this image.

Was this a Proliant server (x86 or x64)?


Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: Boot from ghost CD

the Iatnium server was installed from original microsoft cd (windows 2003 for i64)
and the setup was done on this machine.

Now i want to backup this system by ghost in case of a disaster .
we cannot just reinstall windows and other software because lot off setup is done on this machine.
Thanks,
