Hi Jezda. I think that JeremyBoden was asking me as he quoted me in his post.

Just for info, Ghost is Windows software. I'm not sure how they created the Live CD but it was probably using WinPE. I stand to be corrected though.

Ah you see, that would be where your problem lies. Linux uses different bits and bytes to Windows so the data would not be usable!! <GRIN>

A Windows program wouldn't recognise Linux filesystems and *might* decide that these are empty partitions which can be largely ignored in an attempt to speed up the disk copy.

A linux program wouldn't try to do this.

Not true of Macrium Reflect and not true of most other well-written Windows partitioning/cloning software.

A Linux program could well have been written by an amateur who didn't know what he was doing, whereas the Windows program would be more likely to be written by a professional and checked by other people since it would likely be a commercial product.

Rubbish, if you don't mind me saying so. In reality, there is only well-written software and not well-written software. Both of these exist for Linux and Windows.

Now perhaps we can get back to the OP's issue.

Members, please make comments that assist the OP. Side comments ought to be in PM or email forms.

From images posted it kind of looks like the OP placed the image at the end of an existing drive.

In any case, they are not the same.

What version of Ghost live did you use?
