Your problem sounds familiar. After experiencing the same thing that you did, I tried launching the restore operation by starting Ghost within Windows and, at least initially, not from the Recovery CD.
Within Windows, Ghost acknowledged the request to restore from backup. It allowed me to identify the desired recovery point and it told me to boot from the CD. Once Ghost booted from the CD, the network configuration wizard took over and found the desired recovery point on NAS. It proceeded to verify the image and restore the computer.
The procedure, then is:
1. Start Ghost from within Windows.
2. Identify the desired recovery point and follow the steps until Ghost tells you to boot from CD.
3. Boot from CD and wait for Ghost to restore your computer.
(This presumes that you have set your BIOS to allow booting from CD.)
I recently purchased ghost 14 because it claimed that you can back up to a NAS drive. I thought this would be perfect because I have two computers as well as a windows home server (WHS). One is a desktop and the other is a laptop with both a wireless connection as well as a gigabit lan port, both of which I use. all of the network cable is run through a linksys gigabit switch and the internet comes in to a netgear wireless router then out to the gigabit switch to the rest of the network.
Norton Ghost 14 will allow me to backup to the shared folder I specified, i.e. Norton Ghost Backups on the WHS with out any problems. It does this on schedule and works great.
The problem I have is that when I boot from the restore CD to recover the disk I cannot get to the network location where the backup is located.
here is what happens. On the restore CD I start networking services successfully. when I got to browse for the backup there is no option to look on the network, only on the local machine drives. I then go to map a network drive and I can find the workgroup and the individual computer names, i.e. Server, but I cannot get any further. I also tried clicking on log in as a different user option and entering my credentials for the WHS where the backup is located but it does not make any difference.
After having this problem I tried Acronis true image 11 trial and had no problems at all Acronis will allow me to backup and recover over the network.
I would like to stick with Ghost because I just bought it so any help will be greatly appreciated.
