Ghost 15 is not meant to be run on Windows Server 2003. It is a consumer product for Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7.

I think you need to look at an enterprise grade software like THIS.

Re: URGENT:How to ghost a raid1 mode disk

Ghost 15 supports RAID 0, 1, and 5.

Depending on your setup you may need to add a driver.

I'm almost positive you won't be able to install Ghost into a server OS, but you may be able to make a "cold image" of the system from the recovery disk.

I suggested that a couple times to others here but they never let me know what the results were.

If you don't mind me asking, what makes this an urgent situation?

Re: URGENT:How to ghost a raid1 mode disk

I installed Windows Server 2003 Standard last night into VirtualPC.

Being Virtual PC, I used the 32bit version and was unable to create a RAID.

But I had no trouble making a cold image from the recovery disk and then restoring it.

But I was unable to get the program to install, even using XP compatibility wouldn't work.

I'm installing Windows Server 2008 SP2 now to see if that also works but I will be unable to try windows home server because of the minimum space requirement, or R2 because I can't make a 64bit VM.

Since I had no trouble restoring server 2003, if your recovery disk is able to access the RAID I see no reason why that would not also work.
