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.


Another better product than Symantec Ghost is acronis bootimage, which also supports more hardware than ghost does. This software has a well working backup option too.

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).

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