    SATA2, WinXP64, ghost won't work

    I just got a new SATA2 drive
    I have Ghost 2003, but it will not work with XP 64bit, it installs but with 2 files missing.
    when I try to run ghost, the program just sits there, no change in resourses
    do I need to reinstall, or is there something else that I can use that is free?

    Why can't you just use the ghost boot cd?

    I think it may be the condition of my disk, it won't boot

    Can you make the emergency floppy disks on another system?

    not till I get to work Monday, but this prob has gotten worse

    I tryed to just do a clean install, I set my SATA2 (seagate) drive to the first sata slot, the SATA1 (Maxtor) drive I set to the second, I made the change in the BIOS aswell
    and I booted to my XP64 bit CD, and all was well, I did a full format on the two drives, got past the first part of the install, and after the first reboot, I get blank screens after post.
    I have 4 monitors hooked up, so I know the display is on the right channel, I tryed with just one HD, and swaped between the 2. I tryed the same with DVD ROM's, and every combo.
    I tryed with one stick of ram and i tryed with one video card, used diff KB & mouse
    got the same each time.
