I would just use something like 'dd if=/dev/sdb of=idrivehdd.img' under linux. Much safer.
If you do not have a Linux system, you could even just boot it from a live CD/DVD image and never even install it on your HDD.
I don't think you understand what I'm talking about. Ghost has it's own OS that you boot in to from a flash drive. You never boot into windows.
I'm talking about Ghost Solution, it's designed for network imaging.
This OS looks similar to this.
