About backing up dual-boot computers

You can back up dual-boot computers, even if you have drives (partitions) that are hidden in the operating system from which you run Norton Ghost.

When you run a drive backup, the entire contents of each drive is captured in a recovery point. When you restore a drive, the recovered drive is bootable.


In order for your computer to boot the same from a restored system as it did from the original configuration, you must back up, and then restore, every drive that includes operating system boot information.

You should not create incremental backups of shared data drives if Norton Ghost is installed on both operating systems and they are both set to manage the shared drive.

You might encounter issues if you try to use the Norton Ghost LightsOut Restore feature on dual-boot systems. It is not supported.
