I been trying for the last two days to capture a virgin Dell image from a Vostro 230. The Vostro comes with three partition (one hidden, one recovery and one OS).

I have been unable to capture the hidden partition.

How do I get the imaging to work more like ghost where ghost gets everything... including all partitions, boot sectors, mbrs and such...

You don't. If it's not detecting the hidden partition, then you're SOL.

So essentially if I want to take a clean image then I should stick with Ghost?

If you want a sector-based image, yes. The K2100 does a file-based image.

You should be able to make that hidden partition unhidden, no?
select disk 0
list partition
find the partition that is "hidden"
select paritition # (where number is the number of the hidden partition)
attributes clear hidden

Haven't tested this, but seems like it would work.

I suppose if you "un-hid" before imaging and "re-hid" as a post-installation task, you could accomplish your goal. It sounds like you want a sector-based image though, and the K2100 doesn't do that.
