I have an IDE HD and a SATA HD. I want to clone the C: volume
of the IDE HD to take over all of the new SATA HD and make that my C volume.

This is Win XP Pro.

When I select CLONE from windows at the Ghost interface and choose the
source/destination parameters it reboots the PC into DOS mode and when I get
to the GRAY GHOST dos screen nothing happens. It just sits there. I get an hour glass.

When starting the process it originally told me that my USB mouse driver and Firewire needed some attention. I ended up removing my usb mouse and sticking in a ps/2. Doing this helped me get from a frozen dos screen to a frozen dos screen with the hour glass.

When I say frozen dos screen I mean the gray nortons screen in dos.

Has anyone ever come across this?

If I remember correctly, Ghost 2003 needs an update to be able to handle SATA drives.

I've had difficulty ghosting to different hardware. I suggest you make the image on the pc with the SATA HD and then try pushing it out the other pcs.

Checked out the support site and it said SATA and Intel 865 chpsets have issues with it and the update fixed it. Well I live updated it but it was the same. So I just formated and will reinstall.
