Thanks for your reply.
I didn't even think straight enough to know that the ghost version I'm

What I meant with the last paragraph was I recently made a image of a
XP machine with Ghost (XP Boot Floppy that boots the command prompt and
Ghost on a floppy to start the program) and made a image on a separate
partition I made earlier. Then put it on a extern hard drive and put it
