[SOLVED] Ghost (or equivalent) for IDE to SATA

I've just added a PCI SATA RAID Controller into my system and want to
Ghost the original C: which is ATA (IDE) over to the SATA drive.

Unfortunately, my 'version' of Ghost seems not to support SATA drives as
it doesn't see the drive when I reboot into PC DOS (Ghosts' OS)

I'm happy to purchase a 'ghosting' program so that I can transfer my
current IDE ATA over to a SATA drive .... failing that, it's a re-
install of the whole lot, which I don't want to do.

Any ideas ... which version of Ghost, or alternative?

Acronis trueimage works with my SATA, IDE, SCSI and USB drives, a far
superior program to GHOST in my opinion.

Powerquest's Drive Image 3 does the job. If it's a win2k or winXP boot
disk you're cloning, you'll need to do a repair install and have the
sata driver floppy ready after remembering to press F6 when prompted.

Yup, i'm trying to avoid all of that as that is what Ghost can do,
apparently, but you have to enter all sorts of command lines or
something, so I want an out-of-the-box solution.

Of course, being a Bank Holiday weekend, the poxy SATA drive has just
died on me ..... !

*sigh*

trueimage m8

i am still a big ghost2003 fan for ide
but it meets its match at SATA as a google will prove

i moved to true image due to that and the blue screen of death . . .
