I have spent alot of time and a considerable amount of money putting this system together and would like to have a disk image to restore a fresh clean xp install with all Updates, Drivers, System Tweaks, personal configurations and settings.

The RAID0 setup is on a sil3112 SATA chip on the MB and I can't seem to get Norton Ghost (Included with systemworks 2003) to recognize the "drive" on re-boot to make an image. I know that RAID is not officially supported by ghost, but I have also heard that it is possible. On my first attempt at ghosting the drive my computer went into a "boot loop of death." Every reboot froze at the same point before even getting completely out of POST.

Ghost is / was my method of choice because I'm backing-up to the DVD burner.

1.) Is it possible to get a ghost image with this sil3112 RAID0 setup?
2.) If not ghost, how can this be done?
