    I've tried that and it doesn't work. The program doesn't load. My maxtor program doesn't load either its well strange.

    Someone said that norton ghost can clone a drive even if it has bad sectors? is this true???

    i don't need to recover anything, thankfully my hard drive is working perfectly fine, I can just tell its dying, so i need to clone it to save me having to reinstall everything.

    Oh another question, how do you set an sata drive as the boot drive?

    thanks for your help I really appreciate it

    As long as the drivers are set up on the system, you should simply be able to change the boot sequence within BIOS. If there is a choice for booting from the SATA drive, then you're set.
