My system is P4 3.2 Ghz, Albatron Itell 865 PE Pro11 1ghz matched Ram 128 Nvidia 5500 Video Card, 2 SATa 120 Gig Hard Drives. When I try to Ghost "C" Drive with Nortons Ghost 2003 it hangs after the PC boot. Is there a solution ?
Will an upgrade to Ghost 9 work,? or do I have to throw the Sata disc's in the rubbish bin ?
Can someone help.

Here's an EE question similar to yours (with answer):
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Operating_Systems/WinXP/Q_20765725.html

And actually, this EE question states:
"... the fact your using SATA, Ghost 2003 does not support SATA. I was lucky enough to find this by calling tech support after having the same problems crashign and not posting after it failed."

I've successfully used PowerQuest (now also a Symantec Product) Deploy Center on a Dell system with a SATA drive.  That may help you, thoug of course, you'd have to buy it...

I have discovered that both Powerquest 7 and Norton Ghost 9 will support SATA Discs.
Of course you will have to buy them.
