Has anyone ghosted winXP?
    #1888515 - 09/06/03 03:29 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

So I want to ghost my 40GB HD to my new 120 GB HD. I'm running xp pro sp1, and there are apparently so issues with doing a 1:1 clone with XP. Aparently you have to shut down after Ghost clones the drive and before it reboots. The old HD most be removed, new set to primary master and set active before booting up again.

I just wondered if anyone had actually done this? Did you use ghost? What version of Ghost is needed? Ghost.exe most be run from DOS, can I make a win98 boot disk and copy ghost.exe to it.

I have Ghost 2000 and I think that it support NTFS. Do I need to get 2003 to do this?

BTW, I am trying to do this from a boot disk because my old drive is very unhealthy and I am hoping to clone it with minimal use of my old drive. My old drive started hanging and failed to boot / detect once. I rebooted again and it came up but I immediately shut down to save the drive and hopefully clone it before it goes completely.

Sorry if this sounds like gibberish, I am heavily multi-tasked right now and in a rush.

Any help from someone who has done this would be appreciated.

I have ghosted a win XP pro install on NTFS from one hd to another with no problems at all using norton ghost 2003. I didn't have to do anything special or out of the ordinary.

I got it gone no problem using ghost 2000 (v6.3?). I don't know what all of the troubles I was reading about were all about. There seems to be no problems and it cloned 40 Gb of data in less that 45. min.

Thanks for the reply Seuss.
