Ghost Solution Suite 1.1 and Maxtor One Touch Drive

Help Desk
Hi all - I'm stuck here - just don't know how to make this work - We just purchased Ghost Solution suite 1.1 and the Maxtor One Touch III USB drive - when I create the boot floppy for ghost and test it on another computer it does not see the USB drive at all - I've tried all kinds of insane things to get this to work and have had no luck so far - anybody out there using this? Any help, suggestions, guidance would be greatly appreciated. Lirria

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You’re stuck – and I’m guessing!! But – this might be worth what you’ve paid for it.

Have you checked the BIOS setup?

Have you verified that the PC has USB 2.0, and that the drive is also USB 2.0?

Does the boot floppy have USB drivers on it?

Are the two computers (the build and the target) of the same make and model?

Is it possible that the USB chipsets are different?

That’s all I can think of off-hand.

    The drive is usb 1.12.0 I have found a boot cd that at least talks to the drive, unfortunately I can't write to it or get the cd to let me run what I need - I'm getting closer though. It's definately the usbaspi.sys driver that is the problem - I'm having difficultly locating one that actually works and doesn't hang Ghost up. The Bios is fine - when I boot the PC it sees the drive in Windows - it's just the dos boot that doesn't. I know I have to be "special" don't I? ;-) I'm actually only working with 1 computer right now (asus mobo, scratch build, rather old) but need to also get a cd created for the other computers that don't have floppies - I figure after this - that will be cake.... Maybe somebody out there is a dos boot disc wizard? (I haven't needed to work in dos in forever and it's showing right now) Thanks for the thoughts though! Lirria

    I have had the same issue. It seams that Microsoft does not handle USB drives if you have a hard drive assigned after the last CD/DVD drive. Other then that, I find it necessary to uninstall drivers and let Windows find the new hardware and install the driver its self. This helps with USB devices (Keyboards, Mouse, etc).

    I have seen that problem inside of windows too - but this is trying to get a Ghost boot CD to see the drive through dos so I can image stand alone systems. thanks for the input! Lirria
