Posted on 2009-12-30

Hi everyone, can I use Norton's ghost to make a hard drive image of my current system and then put the image on a brand new hard drive? Will the applications work fine? Or would I have to reinstall everything again?

For WIndows 2000 Server Advance, which Norton Ghost software will work? I think version 15 is for XP and Vista only.

    Accepted Solution

    It depends on your drive configuration.  IS the drive a raid array.  If it is handled by Bios then ghost should be able to recognize the drive and create a image of the drive.  If you are replacing the drive a quicker step with ghost is the drive to drive ghost.  Assuming both drives are IDE you should be able to ghost the drives directly.  For SCSI you will have to create the image.  If the original drive is ok your image / disk clone should be ok also.  With ghost, the system should be just like the original and you shouldn't have to reinstall anything,

    You probably need the GSS ( Ghost solution suite ) since it has bootable media or can be backed up via the network
