Starting the LightsOut Restore Wizard

If you have not already licensed Norton Ghost, the first time you run the LightsOut Restore wizard, you will be prompted to install a license file or a product license key.

Starting the LightsOut Restore Wizard

  1. From Windows, click Start > All Programs > Symantec > > LightsOut Restore Setup.

  2. If the product is not licensed, the Install License File dialog appears. Do one of the following:

    • If you have a license file, browse to its location.

    • If you have the serial number that came with Norton Ghost, click Get License.

    • If you do not have a license file, click Buy Now to purchase the product.

    • If you received a product license key, enter the key in the appropriate fields.

  3. Depending on which option you clicked in the previous step, click Activate, or click Later.

  4. You might be asked to specify the source location of a Symantec Recovery Disk. You can use your Norton Ghost product CD. Specify the location, and then click Next.

  5. At the Options dialog, you can specify the amount of time that the boot menu is displayed. The default is 10 seconds.

    If you leave the Enable Symantec pcAnywhere check box selected, networking will automatically start, and pcAnywhere will be loaded. If you clear this check box, pcAnywhere will not be automatically started.

  6. Select the type of IP address you want to use, and then click Next.

  7. You might be shown a list of network and storage drivers that are not supported in the Symantec recovery environment. Select the box next to the network driver that you would like to copy from your current Windows installation to the Symantec recovery environment, review the list of missing storage drivers, and then click Next.

  8. Browse to the locations of your missing storage and network driver files.


    The location for missing network and storage drivers should point to a path that contains the fully extracted installation package for the desired driver. If you have more than one missing storage driver, you must rerun the LightsOut Restore wizard for each missing driver. Also, the drivers you select should be compatible with Windows Server 2003.

  9. Click Next.

  10. The summary screen with the options you selected is displayed. Click Back if you need to change the options, or if you are satisfied with your selections, click Finish.

    The files are copied from the Symantec Recovery Disk. When the copying has completed, a dialog displays, indicating that LightsOut Restore successfully installed.

  11. Click OK.
