Hi,
I am attempting to transfer data from an old hard drive to a new one using ghost.  I have used the CD Rom cable for the new drive and left old drive as is.  I'm not sure that I have the new drive jumper correctly but have tried each jumper with no avail.  I can get ghost to install and when I select disk to disk I am getting an error of:  "Only one drive...cannot clone locally".  What am I doing wrong?
Thanks,
SCUD1

I would suggest using the second IDE port and setting the drive jumpers to cable (most drives default). In either case you must set the jumper correctly.
You should then be able to see the drive correctly from the bios setup page. (Unless this is a very large drive and you have a very old computer in which case you may need drive overlay software or a controller card)

The drive/primary partition should also be formatted (can you see the drive from windows disk manager?)
If so ghost should see your drive.
