I have a Ghost 7.5 boot floppy disk which works great with IDE hard drives doing a disk to disk copy. How can I make a boot disk with Ghost 2.5 that I can do a disk to disk copy with SATA drives?

Thanks,
Mike

I use Ghost with a client for that task and on SATA drives - no issue. Except that, we are using a much newer version. V7.5 is quite old, and I suggest you upgrade it. Then you should not have a problem.

Does the Ghost 7.5 boot disk not work for you?

Do you mean Ghost Solution Suite 2.5?

You should be able to use the Disk Boot Wizard to create a set of boot disks that will do this for you, but 2.5 the disk set now spans two floppy disks, because the version of Ghost (11), is too large for a floppy disk.

You can put Ghost 11 on a bootable USB key and it works fine that way, and with SATA drives.

Thanks for the advice. I didn't know if using the Boot Wizard would add SATA drivers to the boot disk or not. I had wanted to put it on  USB drive anyway. I will research that method and go that route.

Thanks,

You shouldn't need SATA drivers to boot the machine because SATA is under BIOS or AHCI control. (no SATA drivers are included)l, but the Boot Wizard will ask if you need USB or Firewire drivers.

Thanks for the info. It's bringing back memories about needing to change the ACHI setting in the BIOS to work on SATA drives. I will try it out and see if it works. Most of my disk to disk was with IDE, and I haven't needed to do copy like that in a few years now. The USB will work out just fine.

Thanks,
Mike
