Norton Ghost 2003 Doesn't Work With XP

  chubbs 17:02 10 May 2004

I have been using Ghost with Win98 and cloning my C drive (OS and all Programs) onto an extended partition (my D drive). When the C drive got clogged with the rubbish generated by Windows and the Internet I could clone D back to C and have a pristine system once more.
I'm now using XP and this just doesn't work. Symantec advertise Ghost 2003 as being compatible with XP and files do get transferred but after the black XP intro screen the blue splash screen comes up and the system freezes.
Symantec don't know the answer. Does anyone else?

Can you still make clones. I has the problem of being able to make a clone, but never restore it from multiple CD's? I also would be happy if somebody can help!

Sorry may be a silly question, but is the Norton Ghost 2003 you're using a standalone program or part of a suite - e.g. part of Norton SystemWorks 2003 Pro?

I,ve used ghost 2003 many a time on XP but you have to run it from a floppy disc booting up from the floppy

chubbs, use ghost to create a boot floppy, and run ghost that way.

AcidBurn7uk, check the settings in ghost options are set to enable spanning.
