Hi gazza3411

No, you do not need to install Windows XP on the drive you want to image, the image is for a backup correct?

If you are wanting to image your 40MB harddrive, point to that drive as the Source drive and then point to the drive you want to store the image on as the Destination drive.

If you could provide a few more details on what you are planning to use the image for, that would help us help you. ;)

Hi EA FIELDER!
Thanks for your help. I want to instal the "E" drive so that if the "C" drive fails I have an exact copy to fall back on. When I try a Disk to Disk Clone I get the message "Only 1 Drive- Cannot Clone locally (11050).
When trying through DOS I get "Abort 40204 Error cant fin drive with specified disk identifaction. You may need to load additional drivers...when using Ghost.
I have a Toshiba A10 Sat celeron 30mg HD.
What other info can I give?

How much space is being used on your C drive?

Is your E drive ONLY 40 MB or is it 40GB?
Does it connect to your computer by USB?

Does Windows see the E Drive?

Start > Run
key in:
compmgmt.msc

Under Storage
Click on Disk Management
Is the E Drive listed as Free Space without a drive letter?
Or does it appear with the Drive letter and the File System it is formatted as- FAT32 or NTFS?

Does Windows show the E Drive as Healthy?

This is straight from the website

Symantec Ghost 8.x and Norton Ghost 2003
Symantec Ghost 8.x and Norton Ghost 2003 support USB 1.1 and USB 2 connections for cloning operations that work with an external storage device such as an external USB hard drive.

For this type of cloning operation, use a Ghost Virtual Partition or the Standard Ghost Boot Disk. The option "USB Devices" is available only in the Symantec Ghost 8.x and Norton Ghost 2003 versions of the Ghost Boot Wizard.

Some problems using USB and FireWire in Norton Ghost 2003 were resolved in the November 1, 2002 update to Ghost. To prevent these problems, run LiveUpdate to update Norton Ghost 2003 to the latest version. Read the document Updates to Norton Ghost 2003. These problems are not present in Symantec Ghost 8.x
Earlier Ghost versions
Symantec Ghost 7.5, and earlier Ghost versions do not support cloning over a USB connection to an external storage device.

Connects by USBE: Partition Basic NTFS Healthy 37.3gb Free Space 36.92 98%
I ran live update prior to attempted installation.

Clone I get the message "Only 1 Drive- Cannot Clone locally (11050).
If you are getting the above message, it sounds as if Ghost does not understand where the destination harddrive is.
In Norton Ghost Options > External storage driver settings
I have USB 1.1 drivers selected
and a check mark in Assign Drive Letters

When you select Ghost Advanced > Clone > Next
Do you see the E drive in the Destination window?

Using Windows Explorer can you copy files from the C Drive to the E Drive?

I downloaded the 15 day trial version of Acronis True Image 8.0, worked perfect for me. It took about an hour for Acronis to Image my 80GB internal harddrive to my 80GB external harddrive. Wow!

Yes, I also spent money on Norton Ghost 2003. :(

So are you all set now?

Unless I am doing it wrong, Norton Ghost takes over 12 hours to Clone my harddrive to my external harddrive. :eek:

With only one computer available, that is too much time to allocate to one process!

Yes, I gathered you were not successful using Ghost.

This statement leads me to believe you made a Backup using other means.
Did I interpret that correctly?

In the Options setting for Ghost, under USB peer to peer settings is All drivers selected?

While running the Norton Ghost Wizard did you select the drivers to be installed using the: Advanced Button?

Did you create a Ghost boot disk set?

What brand is your external harddrive?

I cant find an advanced button but there is an advanced settings button which has scsi drivers but it doesnt auto detect any drivers.I notice in the external storage section that the "NO USB" setting is ticked and the 1.1 setting is in gray?

It appears in the windows version of Ghost's wizard, after you select the Destination Disk, which if you are unable to do so, you would not be able to see.

"NO USB" setting is ticked and the 1.1 setting is in gray?
Your settings appear to have changed from your post #8.

See if these articles help to configure your drive:
Error "Can't find drive with specified disk identification. You may need to load additional drivers. . ." when using Ghost

Ghost 2003 does not list USB or FireWire drives

Let us know if anything changes,
