If you're wondering why I would want to do that, here's why.
I tried Norton Ghost 2003 to copy my master drive to my slave drive and got the message "Invalid Destination Drive". I simply have no idea as to what was wrong with my destination drive; it was working just fine as a (slave) drive. With no idea as to what caused that message and no idea of how to solve the problem, the question in my subject occurred to me. I suppose I could buy and try Acronis for $50 or a new HD for $50 but that's epensive.
I suppose I could do a clean install (per michaelstevenstech.com) but that will install XP since a clean install involves getting the process going with my XP CD. I don't want XP on the destination drive since if I copy my entire master drive, XP would of course be there. If I go the clean installl route I'll have to activate and I just did that not long ago and MS might object. I just figured if I could make the current slave drive blank, that perhaps THEN I would be able to copy my master drive with Ghost 2003 without getting the aforementioned message and I'd be all set.
Is my idea here doable...feasible?
