How to create a bootable CD/DVD that includes an existing image on the same CD/DVD.

Note: Due to the technology used by the GBW, it Cannot effectively add or burn image files directly to a CD/DVD ROM when selected in the Destination Drive window of the GBW. This means our GBW cannot add image files through our default direct burning process and cannot be supported at this time.

Things you will need before you start:
In order to create a working boot DVD with the image included on the same disk, you will need to upgrade your version of Ghost Solution Suite to the latest 2.5 build, or later.

After applying the latest upgrade, open Ghost Boot Wizard, and note the version and build at the bottom to the left of the Copyright. It must be or later.

There are two methods that can be used, a manual restore or a fully automated restore. Below are a set of instructions for each of these methods.
Note on Limitations: Ghost Boot Wizard (GBW) caps data at 4 GB. This means when creating an ISO file, if the image file or image segments plus the Ghost Boot files have a total data size of over 4GB, it will fail. Due to ISO limitations, any individual file size cannot be over 2 GB. The Ghost Boot Wizard has limitations that won't allow it to write an image file directly to a CD/DVD. The Ghost Boot Wizard does not have the ability to use the full capacity of a dual layer disk when creating ISO images or burning DVD’s. If you need to burn data larger than 4 GB to a DVD, then it will have to be done outside of the GBW with Third Party software.
