    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.
