Iam trying to use Ghost 11 to image a SATA Drive.  I usually boot the machine via a USB key which has PC Dos, which takes me to Ghost, then i can select Ghostcast or Multicast and image the machine, but now with the SATA drive, i don't have the option to do a multi or ghost cast

Switch Sata Off prior to ghosting is the easiest method, you can do this within the bios, alternatively you will need to create a Windows PE Boot Disk to be add Sata Controllers, try Barts PE for a free one www.nu2.nu/pebuilder/

I had the same problem - I went to the bios and changed the HD from the default SATA mode to "compatibility" mode and Bart PE (without SATA drivers) picked up the HD. The image is transfering about 1/4 the normal speed, using Bart PE with SATA drivers is going to be the way to go.
