We are looking for Cloning software (ghost if possible) to make images from Vista installations.
We use it for the assembly of our new PC's. Now we are using ghost 10.0. But this doesn't work.
Is there another version of other software that we can use. We are looking for a fast way to push an image with vista onto a hard drive.

Look into using WAIK (Windows vista Automated Installation Kit) - their acronym, not mine.

I agree with Geisrud, if yiou are doing this in a serious way then the WAIK needs to be considered.
Also have a look at http://www.microsoft.com/technet/community/events/vista/DSK-03.mspx which gives an overview of the process.

Don't forget that you will need to Sysprep vista if the images are going to be used on a domain.

Vista comes with XImage that can be used for imaging - once you have done the preperation

I've heard that Norton ghost 12 would be compatible with vista and vista images.
It's coming some time in april....

If all you need to do is clone a hard drive to put onto another hard drive, you can use Acronis Trueimage for that, but if you are doing multiple installs especially on a domain you should look at WAIK and sysprep as already stated. Acronis is compatible with Vista whereas Ghost is not currently.

Hope this helps.
