I have a bunch of macs that i wish to dual boot into windows and mac os.   I have created the first machine and it works just fine.   I attempted to image the machine using ghost, but it will not recognize the mac portion.    

Any advice for imaging the machine using both partitions?

Thanks Strung.    No way to do it with norton ghost?   We just purchased the new version of it and the boss wants it used.

I don't know if Ghost would work. Why not give it a try if you already have it?

I did try using the same method i use for a windows only PC.   It seemed to only copy the windows portion.   I cannot boot into mac os when i did it.

Ghost will only copy the Windows portion for sure. I don't know of any program that will copy both. I think you have to copy the two partitions separately using separate software, unless Bombich's Netrestore will do both. You might ask Bombich:  http://www.bombichl.com.
