Ghost 15.0 SRD will not work with my SATA 6.0 Gb/s WD VelociRaptor Drive
I just finished my Windows 7 Ultimate installation. Before I install any third-party programs I want to make an Image of my hard drive. I created a Norton Ghost 15 System Recovery Disk (SRD) to accomplish this task. The one thing that I had noticed about my new computer was that the BIOS does not recognize the Western Digital VelociRaptor SATA 6 Gb/s drive. I thought it was unusual, so I contacted the manufacturer and they said that although it was not recognized in the Bios it would be recognized by Windows 7. They were right. Their explanation was that their BIOS will only register the Intel controllers and not the Marvell SATA 6 Gb/s controllers.
I went to run the System Recovery Disk and it failed. It had a couple of different error messages, so I contacted tech support. I explain to them what I was doing and eventually my call was forwarded to one of the engineers at Symantec. He told me that Norton Ghost 15 will not work with either SATA 6.0 GB/s or USB 3.0 because it uses WinPE 2.0 and that I would have to wait for the next version, meaning Norton Ghost 16 to have a resolution because that new version will be run under WinPE 3.0 or higher. He also stated that even if I loaded the Marvell drivers to the System Recovery Disk, it still would not work.
So that brings me to this point, is the combining of Ghost 15 System Recovery Disk (SRD) and WinPE 3.0 at this link below http://community.norton.com/t5/Other-Norton-Products/How-to-build-the-Ghost15-SRD-on-WinPE-3-0/m-p/241476#M24006 a resolution to my problem?
Let me thank you in advance for your response.
