    Hey everyone,

    Been a while since my lost post but im in a bit of a pickle here.

    I have an IBM Netvista that I need the hard drive copied. Now on these specific machines (as on many IBM) there is a small 2GIG partition with the windows install files on them. Convinient if you dont have the recovery cd...all the files youll need are alreadyo on the drive. The problem is that when you do a recovery from that partition, it makes the windows partition NTFS. So now im left with a 38GIG NTFS windows partition and a 2GIG FAT32 windows install partition.

    I think is confusing the hell out of ghost because im getting nothing but errors. After everything is done (on the cloned drive) windows will boot to the loading screen but then give me the blue screen of death.

    Any thoughts? FYI Im using ghost 2003
