As a DOS-based program, Ghost requires machines running Windows to reboot to DOS to run it.
Ghost could clone a disk or partition to another disk or partition or to an image file.
Gdisk serves a role similar to Fdisk, but has greater capabilities.
A Norton Ghost version for Novell Net Ware (called 2.0), released around 1999, supports NSS partitions (although it runs in DOS, like the others).
The machine still needs to reboot to the virtual partition, but the user does not need to interact with DOS.
Symantec deprecated Live Update support for Norton Ghost 2003 in early 2006.
