I need to restore NTFS images to a new, not yet partitioned hard disk.
I know the version of Ghost I have can read/write NTFS partition but I
don't know if I must create NTFS partitions on my new hard disk first
before restoring the images.
The only way I know to create NTFS partition is to use Windows
XP installation CD, but I certainly don't want to go through the whole
XP setup process just to create some NTFS partitions

Thanks for any input.

Ghost will create NTFS partitions for you.

Ghost will gladly restore an NTFS image to any partition type, then changes it
to NTFS.

Ghost v9.0 certainly can when selecting the restore option in the Recovery
Environment!
Ghost v2003 definitely can't!

The OP asked if it is possible to restore an NTFS partition (image) to an
unpartitioned HDD (unallocated space) with Ghost v<unknonw>!

From Symantec document:
-----------------------------------------------
Windows file systems
- Ghost supports native cloning for the following file systems: FAT8, FAT12,
FAT16, FAT32, FAT64, NTFS.

Symantec Ghost 8.0 and Norton Ghost 2003 are the only versions of Ghost that
are able to save images directly to local NTFS partitions. Though older
versions of Ghost can clone NTFS partitions, they cannot save image files
directly to NTFS partitions except when using a corporate version of Ghost
to save images over a network connection that is not peer-to-peer.

Notes:
Ghost 2001 and later, and Ghost 6.0.3 and later, support the NTFS version
that is included in Windows NT and Windows 2000. Only Norton Ghost 2002,
Norton Ghost 2003, Symantec Ghost 7.5, and Symantec Ghost 8.0 support the
NTFS version that is included in Windows XP.
