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 . . .
