We have used Norton Ghost to ghost around 300 computers. We have used it for years without any issues, until now. We are running into issues while logging in. We get the error that the profile cannot load and you will be logged in using a temp profile. Sometimes shutting it off and restarting corrects this, but not always. I have run UPHClean on it. I have deleted the profile, and also wiped out registry keys related to the profile. We think it maybe related to our wiping out our network and doing a reinstall, and are using images that were made prior. Some of the computers having the issue have images that wereinstalled prior to the network reinstall and some are from computers that were imaged after. Maybe this is our issue? Anyone have an idea?

My only experience of using NG is in real DOS mode even though it will run under Windows. This is because running it in real DOS is the only safe way to create an image of a disk or partition on which the oprating system is installed. You should never attempt to do this within Windows, whatever Norton may claim to the contrary. Using it in DOS mode also removes any need for that profile nonsense.
