Specs: Windows XP Pro SP3

I have a user who is a member of SBS 2003 Domain with Active Directory. The user has filled up her hard drive, so I installed a larger one and have attempted ghosting the old drive to the new one.

I run into issues when trying to boot up to the new drive. I have to do a Windows Repair to get the computer to be able to boot up at all. Then when I do I run into Domain issues because it says that I'm not a member anymore??

Does anyone have the correct steps it takes to get this done??

Symantec has documentation on how to user most versions of ghost.

A repair should not be needed if you did it right.

A ntbackup could have been used or even the OEM software that the hard drive maker offers to clone disk.

Can you explain a little more in depth on the NTBackup and how it should be properly executed for my scenario?

Microsoft has all the documentation you would want for their products. Somewhere.

Start here.

See also built in help and support pages.

Basically you create a backup with system state. Install OS and apply restore.
