not sure if ver5.0 fully supports winodws xp 2nd edition/xp sp2? I believe Powerquest merged with Symantec with it's drive imaging technology. I have success using norton ghost 2003 for backups of windows xp sp2, although have not used the clone function.
Might be worth installing hd on secondary ide channel & set jumper to master; also might be worth unnistalling & reinstalling drv image.
hope this may be of some help.many thanks
