Yesterday I installed a second hard drive into a new Dell Dimension 4600, and then installed Ghost. The intention being to create the image on the second drive. However when I attempt to run Ghost to create the image file it goes through all the stages until it restarts in PCdos and then fails.
The log shows that it "Can't find drive with specified disk identification. You may need to load additional drivers to access this drive."
I have specified the new drive, which is partitioned into two, to Ghost. Windows sees both partitions ok, so I cannot understand why it won't work. I do received a dialog about devices that may need my attention, these are a scanner and tablet, both USB. I am told that I may need to add drivers in the advanced settings for them, but I don't see why these should cause a problem, they are not external storage devices.
Did you make the partitions using the standard Windows tools or have you used a third party toll (such as arcronis)? If you used a third party tool it may be that it tells Windows one thing (hence your partitions show up correctly) but the information is not available to PCDOS before windows kicks in. If thats not the case maybe try re-installing Ghost.
Deleted, recreated and formatted in disk management. Still got the problem. Forgot about the path for the log file though. I will have to give up for now. Will try again later, or load Drive Image. I've got DI7, but decided to give Ghost a try instead.
