I have xp on 1latpop and Windows 7 on a laptop and PC.  I want to use Ghost 14 to do system backups that I can restore from should I need to.  Does this work between the 2 OS and the Ghost 14 software.  I am only so so in computer literacy and want to be able to do this and maintain this myself

It does. I like better Acronis from www.acronis.com

I used to be a die hard fan of Ghost until Vista came out and we started having problems. They are now fixed but Acronis is so much simpler .... it is almost impossible to make a mistake and at the same time.....it is so powerful.... you can test the fully functional trial for 30 days.

The above said..... even though it will work, it will have compatibility issues. If you want to stick with Ghost..... buy version 15.

Honestly ....In your scenario.... I would use the integrated software that comes with Windows 7 : Click on Start and type: backup and restore
Select on the left: Create a System Image.
This will take care perfectly of Windows 7.
The Ghost 14 that you already have will take care of your XP machine.
