I found that Ghost 2003 would not restore from USB devices. I had to copy the image files from the external device to an internal partition or HDD.
Changed to Acronis True Image. No more problems.
This may be relevant.

Interestingly I am a beta tester for Acronis. I love the above program. I have two pairs of drives. I do a HDCOPY once a month and it creates a bootable slave drive. I can, using a boot manager, boot to the slave drive then go into Acronis and do a HDCOPY to the C : drive if I have a failure.
I also have a master data folder. Under it I placed all my data folders. Then before I shut down the machine I do a copy and paste to the slave drive.

With the sata drive, you will need driver for that. I suggest to add sata driver in floppy disk and re-do the ghost. The arconis is better, but ghost is still can-do software for this issue.
