I am talking about 30GB, Now what I want is to make a ghost bootable CD of this win2000 with anti virus and drivers only. So that it will be useful to reinstall the OS after formatting HD is it possible?
I have norton ghost software and dunno where to start.
Depends on which version of Norton Ghost you have. If you have the latest, that's great - it is capable of backing up NTFS drives.
I only have the 2000 version of Ghost - I have not worked w/ the latest version. I don't think even the latest version has the capability to just extract yiour drivers and AV for ghosting purposes. I may be wrong about that but it's certainly not an option in my version.
What you should have done was while you were doing your W2K installation, make a backup using ghost right after you had installed your OS and AV.
And i've never heard of not being able to clone a W2K computer...absolute bull.
