How do I restore a norton ghost backup?

by on November 15, 2011

Q: I’ve just created a copy of one laptop’s C: drive using Norton Ghost. I’ve stored this copy on an external drive, and want to “install” this drive as the C: drive on a different laptop. How do I do this?

    First off, unless both laptops are 100% identical in terms of hardware you are probably going to have some problems. You’ll need to do a normal windows install to get Windows running correctly.

    If both computers are 100% hardware identical, hook the external drive to the other computer and set it as the bootable drive in the bios. Boot from the Ghost Disk images and follow the on screen instructions.
