    Is the HD you are installing new?

    I think johnwill’s suggestion was to partition from there. You want to partition then format. Right click in the drive area and there is an option to delete the partition. I presume after you have deleted it there is an option to make a partition – I’ve never done it from there. You can also format from a right click after it is formatted.

    If the drive is showing as the right size you might just format it. I would try that first but I don’t want to speak for him since you are following his suggestion.

    Well, you're 100% right. There is absolutely no reason to install the EZ-BIOS overlay on any system built in the last 4 years, and even before that if you upgrade the BIOS. I truthfully don't even think about drive overlays anymore. :)

    Right Click on My Computer, Manage, Disk Manager.

    Locate the new drive and right click on the graphic and format it.

    Then try reading/writing to it, if that works, try the GHOST run again.

    I thought you said to partition it from disk manager.

    It is formatting at the moment. It may take a while as it is just one big partition 74mb. What should I do to read/write to it?
    I am not too hot on the tech side, as you will have realised.

    The drive has now formatted. Under volume the letter changed to N... & its status is healthy. It does say the drive letter is E in the bottom box & says new volume E 74.53 GB NTFS healthy.
    Also in my computer it says E new volume.
    Any advice on the above read/ write procedure would be welcome.
    Then I will try ghost again.
    It is getting late so I will use any advice tomorrow.
    You guys are great with advice. I wish I had half your knowledge.

    Howdy there Jascat...

    Just a question...

    Are you trying to do this from a Ghost boot disk, or from within the Ghost app. in XP ?

    The reason I'm asking, if you do it from the app ( and not the boot disk ) it creates a virtual boot partition that it loads every thing into, the boot disk does not...

    I always have Ghost create a bootdisk with itself on it and run it from the disk - this way no files on the harddrive are being used and it should not have any problems. Also if you plan on putting the images on CD make sure you have Ghost split the images into 650/700 Mb parts and probably wouldn't hurt to compress them either.

    Hi guys,
    Ghost still failed to clone my hard drive to my new second drive.
    I have copied out the log. It mentions sector failure. This sounds bad, I have visions of spending hours loading countless CDs & floppies into a new hard drive, the very thing I was hoping to guard against by having the second drive as a back up. I have surface scanned my C disk for bad sectors & it is ok? It also works perfectly. I also had Norton disk doctor do a check on both drives & they were both ok. However here is a copy of the log. Sorry about its length. Maybe it will help you help me.

    Can anyone understand the problem from the log data.
    If it is a bad sector on my C drive I cannot understand why surface scan or Norton disk doctor does not find it.
    If it is problems on my C drive, is it a case of hours of loading CDs & floppies, or is there another solution.

    This is from the Symantec site...

    Error: "29004 Read sector failure..." or "Bad blocks encountered" while restoring an image

    Situation:
    When using Ghost to restore an image file to another computer, you see the error message "29004 Read sector failure, result = 32, drive = 128, sectors 95 to 159," "Bad blocks encountered," or a similar message. In some cases, the error does not occur when you create and restore the image with a different Ghost version.

    Solution:
    This problem appears to be due to the way Ghost is accessing the drive. To resolve the problem, recreate the image using the -FNI switch to start Ghost:

    Ghost -FNI

    If that does not work, recreate with the -FFX switch also:

    Ghost -FFX -FNI

    These switches force Ghost to use a different method for accessing the drive.

    Alternate cause and solution
    If this error occurs regardless of your Ghost version, it is probably due to bad sectors on the destination drive if restoring an image, or due to bad sectors on the source drive if creating an image. Run Scandisk, CheckDisk, or Norton Disk Doctor with a thorough surface test.

    If the problem persists, run Ghost with the -BFC switch. This will allow Ghost to ignore up to 500 bad blocks on the destination drive.

    To clone a disk that has numerous bad sectors, run Ghost with the -FRO switch. This instructs Ghost to continue cloning regardless of the number of bad sectors.

    If the problem continues, contact the hard drive manufacturer and obtain the diagnosis program for your specific hard drive. Run the diagnosis program on the hard drive and see if this resolves the problem.

    Thanks. I am not very techy on computers. I found the place to enter a command line in ghost. I do not know exactly how to enter the info. I tried typing ''ghost -fni'' & tried the others, but that must be wrong. Any advice as to the full line of info I should type that it will understand would be welcome

    I tried all the available options & the clone still stops at around 12 to 14%. I have checked my disks for bad sectors with surface scan & Norton disk doctor. They got a clean bill of health.
    I think I will have to admit defeat & just forget about using the second hard drive for a back up.
    I can always use it when this drive goes belly up.
    I am mentally exhausted trying to do what I thought would be a simple task. Even Maxblast 3 refuses to copy my hard drive.
    Unless anyone has another idea, I will stare defeat as a chiropidist would say.
