I have an 80gb 7200 ST80023AS SATA hard drive with my windows installation and loadsa progs.....

I have just bought a new Western digital raptor 10000rpm SATA hard drive and i want to use Symantec Ghost corporate edition to GHOST my old drive to my new one.

Does anyone know whether this software can do this or would i be best to create a RAID mirror from one to the other and then take out the old drive ?

My sys spec is

ASUS P4P800E deluxe
P4 3.0 prescott & Zlaman fan
1gb Corsair 2,3,3,6 matched
hard drive as above
Pioneer DVD A07
Liteon 52x24x52
ATI 9800se AIW

Help always appreciated ;)

i have set up raid mirror systems before and been able to unplug the 1st drive in order to boot to the 2nd to test whether drive failure is covered by it....

I have done it myself. The Norton Ghost can clone a RAIDed SATA (2 disks) into a single IDE. RAIDed_SATA-to-single_SATA and single_SATA-to-single_ SATA of course no problem.
