    Create a bootable floppy (you will need it to recover anyway) and add both the SATA controller drivers and the USB drivers. You may need to create two floppies.

    Use the floppies to run your backups.

    BpB's right - had the worst time cloning a drive until I finally discovered the former IT guy bought a SATA drive as a replacement in an older machine - go figure

    Use Ghost to create the two boot floppies (not the usual single one) and choose the option that includes loading the SATA drivers - should work then
