How to Convert GHO to VHD


Symantec Ghost provides a way to create disk images from your existing computers, as well as the ability to load previously stored images and use them as the basis for building a new computer. When you create an image with Ghost, the program saves that file with the .GHO format. The Ghost program also gives you the ability to convert the GHO files you create into other formats like VHD.

  • Open Microsoft Virtual Server or Virtual PC. Create a new VHD file. You can also download an empty VHD file from the Internet. A site is listed in the References section below.

  • Run the VHDMount utility in Microsoft Virtual Server. Type the command "vhdmount /p /f image.vhd" to mount the empty VHD file to your local drive.

  • Close Microsoft Virtual Server and open Symantec Ghost. Run the Ghost32 utility.

  • Choose the "Local" option, then "Disk" and "From Image." Select the GHO image you want to convert to VHD format.

  • Select the destination disk that represents the location of the empty VHD file. Be careful when choosing the destination drive, since you could inadvertently overwrite a needed disk file. Confirm your choice to start the conversion process.
