This is Windows NT Workstation 4.0, I don't see anything in the User's Guid that says it is supported. No, I haven't tried it, that's why I'm asking, I don't want to waste my time if it's not supported.

The Norton Software may not be able to install on the system.  But it will be able to clone the drive as long as it's not encrypted.  

If you have the Ghost 14 install CD it should be bootable and you should be able to boot from it and run it to clone your NT 4.0 Hard Drive.

Or using another computer pull the hard drive from the NT 4.0 machine and connect it to the other computer that has an operating system compatible with Ghost 14. Install Ghost 14 and then you can clone the NT 4.0 hard drive with it.
