    New Hard Disk Problem with Norton Ghost
    Mac Pro 10.6.3
    Boot Camp
    Norton Ghost 15.0
    Windows 7
    Hard disk: Seagate Sata 2

    I've just installed a new hard disk that is intended as a backup disk for Windows 7, installed through Boot Camp on the Mac Pro tower. I've chosen Norton Ghost as the backup software, and when I try to select the installed drive as the backup disk via Windows 7, I receive the following error messages: "H is a read only location and not a valid destination. Error E7D1001D: unable to open. Error EBAB03F1: access is denied."

    On the Mac side in Disk Utility, I have erased the new disk using the "Zero Out Data" option, and the status information for this disk is: write status: read/write; s.m.a.r.t. status: verified; partition map scheme: GUID Partition Table.

    Basically, the newly installed hard disk seems to have read and write status on the Mac side but not on the Windows 7 side.

    Thanks for any tips on how to make Norton Ghost read this disk as read/write within Windows 7.

    The disk will have to be formatted as FAT32 or NTFS in order for Windows to be able to write to it.

    I've got it working now with MS-DOS (FAT) selected in the Partition - Format window, and Master Boot Record selected in the Partition - Options window.

    Thanks for the support.
