Ghost really isn't intended to be used with HFS partitions. I'm surprised it actually worked and yielded a bootable system.

I would recommend formatting the 500GB drive and using SuperDuper! to do the clone.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Carbon Copy Cloner is much better for moving OSX data around.
Ghost sometimes seems to do weird things on Macs (Although it seems to work perfectly well for copying/restoring a single Windows partition).

So how exactly does the carbon copy cloner work?? Does it create a fully bootable copy of your HD onto another HD?? The reason i ask is i have a similar problem i have a 160gb HD in my mac mini and want to swap it for the WD HD in my external (500gb) so can i easily make the external a clone/ghost drive then pull the Drive out of the external and simply swap them over or does that program create a unbootable image of your HD??

Carbon copy cloner and superduper will both make a bootable clone of your HD.
So easy way is to clone your internal to your 500GB external, and then just plonk it in and you are up and running.
