Depending what image software and version of it, you simply image the entire disk to disk. For easier imaging process, your imaging software should able support scsi.

What is image software you have?

gparted from http://gparted.sourceforge.net allows you to copy discs as well as resize and manipulate partitions. Best of all, it works brilliantly and it's free.

ghost doesn't support server version of windows, so there is no hope to make a backup image of windows server. You need server version of symantec product Backup Exec, but it's not cheap about 1000$. I'd recomend to use true image it's cheaper and quite good at least we use it in our company to perform server backups.

Ive imaged servers using ghost countless times without issue. (I use ghost 8 outside of windows, i would never attempt to do it inside windows.) Symantec just doesnt officially support it. When you image from one to the other it will ask about the destination partition size(s) and generally automatically fills the disk. Just check to make sure the partitions are correct and you should be fine.
