Norton ghost may work, but you would be better off to contact your computer vendor and for a small fee they will send you
any disk's that came with the original system, you will need all pertinent information about the original install.

Computer help forums are full of those that go around the internet
clicking Willy Nilly and installing or downloading everything in site
