Dell Precision 490 constant reboot after ghost image completed

\015 I have a Dell Precision 490 with two hard drives. When I install a 64 bit version of windows it installs OK. When I image the machine with a 32 bit ghost image it goes into a constant windows start up screen, then a blue screen, then a reboot. Any clues?\015

Hello-
\015\012
\015\012I figured out how to ghost a Dell Precision 490 with a 32 bit Windows XP Image! Like you I had the same problem where it would constantly reboot after I imaged it with an existing 490 image. The answer is actually very simple. Boot up your Precision 490 and hit F2 to enter the bios. Select Drives and then SATA Operation, change it to "Raid Autodetect / ATA". Reboot the 490 and re image the machine, it will now work!
Ghost may be currupted, install with a setup or bootable cd.
