I recently purchased Ghost 10 and an IBM t60 laptop (XP Pro).  The laptop does not have a floppy drive.  Booting from the Ghost 10 CD,  the hard disk (Intel SATA controller : Intel 82801 GBM SATA AHCI Controller) is not recognized, so I have no where to recover data to if there is a failure.  I need some help.  Is it possible to make this setup work?

Ghost 10 supports the SATA drive, but you need to find the right switch for it. Please see the link for the switch:

http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/sunset-c2002kb.nsf/0/78ce796c73b409da85256ee500610bb0?OpenDocument&seg=en&lg=en&ct=us

But your question is about recovery data, you might try: http://www.getdataback.com . You might try to hook up the drive on other system (using IDE convertor / adaptor) to get data.

Let me re-phrase because these solutions seem most directed at creating an image file.  The issues is that I can create the image on a usb drive.  When I boot to the Symantec CD for recovery purposes, I can not see my drive off of the controller.  Do I need to make special boot media including the controller driver?  This has to be a bootable CD as I have no floppy.   I want to test that I can recover a hard disk (image to a new drive) in the case of failure.  Ghost has no problem identifying my USB drive where the images reside.

Should I look at other software options?

If you asked other software, then Acronis or Bootit-Ng are software I highly recommend.

Back to question, the problem is ghost can see USB but no SATA as said, then I think you should create sysprep which should contains sata controller drivers (likely creating XP sysprep).

The ghost 10 supports sata as I posted above still able get to work, only choosing right switch to mount the sata drive. You should place a call to Symantec for support, they will give you directions of How-To.

I contacted Symantec and had to send them some system info as well as the drivers for the controller.  They said they will make a custom boot disk for me (36-72 hours).  I'll let you know if it actually works.

It will work. Actually, it is normal way to upgrade your norton ghost, but recently Symantec suddenly give customers more support than they ever were before.

Good luck.

They turned around the ISO in about 2 hours....not bad.  The disk booted and the drive was found.
