Using Ghost with Server 2003 and Windows XP

I use Windows XP for my private daily use, although I have two separate partitions on which I run Windows Server 2003 in order to trial a variety of other software which needs to run on Windows Server 2003 again this I do privately at home.

My question is I would like to purchase Norton Ghost for Windows XP primarily but would also ideally like to take an image of the Server drive. Is this possible? I have noted that Ghost 10 is recommended for use with Windows XP and 2000 professional only.

Is it possible to use Ghost with two separate operating systems?

Do you mean you have been able to use the same Ghost application to take an image of both Windows XP and Windows Server 2003.

There are some issues with using Ghost on drives that are dynamic, or which are mirrored, so watch out for that if this applies to your case.

All my partitions are primary and created through Disk Management would the issues apply?

You can view them in Disk Management (Control Panel -> Admin Tools -> Computer Management -> Disk Management) to see whether the partitions are "basic" or "dynamic"
