    Yes, Ghost is not compatible for installation, but I learned on the Norton forum that Ghost 15 from a boot disk works ok with Win 8, and I've been using it successfully on another computer.

    My problem here is that I cannot get the computer to boot from a disk, any disk. The drive seems to be excluded from the boot order. I will be looking into the Secure Boot issues that were suggested above.

    Norton Ghost 15 uses WinPE2 which will no boot on a new PC with Pre-installed Windows 8, SSR uses WinPE4 which will boot on a new PC with Pre-installed Windows 8.

    You can only install Norton Ghost as a 30 day try only.
