On some hardware it works, on others not. Officially ghost doesn't support hardware raid controllers, although many will work. Usually I prefer using something better, like bootit-ng to do images. This works on most hardware too, and you can try it with the trial version which is fully functional, except it won't allow you to restore images after the trial period has expired.

There are some free tools to help create customizable bootable cd/dvd:

I tried to access the BartPE website, but I cannot get to it. I don't know why.
Winbuilder looks like it is not intended for the server version (I may be wrong).

Other forums:
Ghost Solution Suite 2.0 is for server type, not Ghost 12. However, if you did not buy it yet, go with Rindi recommend.
