ServerMagic might - Also, just break the raid and swap a disk out.  (Ok, less than ideal, but an option).  There's always tape.  And you could try PowerQuest DeployCenter (Now a symantec product, I believe).  DriveImage also (actually it's new version is part of Deploy CEnter).

From Veritas Technical Support:

There has been quite a few problems happening with Windows XP service pack 2.Hence we initially suggest you to follow the technotes below,

[Important information regarding Backup Exec for Windows Servers and Windows XP Service Pack 2 ]
http://seer.support.veritas.com/docs/270139.htm

[Push installations of Backup Exec and/or the Remote Agent for Windows Servers (RAWS) to Windows XP Service Pack 2 systems fail with a "connect to server" error.]
http://seer.support.veritas.com/docs/270144.htm

[Backup or restore operations may fail with "0xa000848c - Unable to attach to one of the drives." and "Unable to attach to \\SERVER" after Service Pack 2 has been applied to a Windows XP system. ]
 http://seer.support.veritas.com/docs/270126.htm

You can perform the IDR in a  non-server environment also.
You can refer the following document which explains how to use IDR on Windows XP systems,

[How to create Intelligent Disaster Recovery diskettes for Windows 2003/XP using Backup Exec 9.x ]

We hope this resolves your query.Feel free to revert back for any additional queries.

True Image server 8.0 works like a charm. but haven't had any extensive test on it, but it seems to work pretty well.
