I'm trying to ghost a HP 6005. It has two drives that are setup with RAID. It is loaded with Windows 7 32 bit OS. I get a write error when it sends the image to the serer. If I change the Bios to native mode, I am unabe to even select the drive that contains the OS. Any help would be appreciated.

are the volumns dynamic?  Ghost used to may still have problems with dynamic drives.  Also you could be experiencing a problem because of the raid controller and Ghost not being able to recognize the drives because of that.

If I put it in RAID mode, it sees both drives as one. If I use native it sees two separate drives, but I can ony image the first one. Not the second one. I need a way to image the whole system.

if it is a mirrored system you would not ghost both drives.. *they are the same.
if is a different raid you will have to backup while it is running using different software.. perhaps using a vmware tool to convert a live machine to a virtual or something like that.
