I know I had a problem restoring Windows Vista using Ghost v7.5. Ghost v8.0 probably has the same issue.

Windows Vista & 7 records the signature bytes of the hard disc drive and checks the signature on each boot. If they differ, Windows will fail to start.
When Ghost restores the image, it modifies the signature bytes, causing Windows to fail to start.

When restoring an image to the same computer/hard disc drive using Ghost, add the -FDSP switch to preserve the signature bytes on the destination disc.

If you plan to restore an image to a different computer or hard drive you will need to use BCDEDIT on the source system, before creating the image.

BCDEDIT /set {bootmgr} device boot
BCDEDIT /set {default} device boot
BCDEDIT /set {default} osdevice boot

Open in new window

When you run the ghost.exe, add a space and -FDSP to command line.

ghost.exe -FDSP

RootsManConnect With a Mentor Commented:
Forget about the sector copy and FRO mode.
Usually only used areas are copied during imaging, thus the resulting image is usually smaller that the total capacity of the source drive.  A sector copy will copy every sector whether it's has has data or not.  
If a drive has bad blocks, you'll want to try and correct them with SpinRite before creating an image.
