Are there any plans to provide support for Windows 8?
It should appear in the next major release of Ghost Solution Suite (version 3). However, the ship date of V3 has slipped several times and so it is anyone's guess when (or if) it will appear. I would suspect that if it does not appear this year then it's unlikely to appear ever, as there will be insufficient user base left to cover the development costs.

Ghost Solution Suite 2.5.1 support matrix for Windows 8
Thanks In Advance
I believe the O/P is asking when Ghost will provide support for Windows 8 - this implies the full capabilities of the product and not just a matrix of what functions still happen to work in the existing release.
Remove the content...!!
Thanks EdT; That is exactly what I'm asking for. Testing the product tells me what it can do. I want to know if Symantec is going to relaease a version that fully supports Windows 8 (or Windows 7 for that matter).
The current version 2.5.1 fully supports Windows 7
No 2.5.1 does not fully support Windows 7; Autoinstall does not work, not that it worked all that well on XP.
Forget AutoInstall. Ghost is first and foremost an imaging tool and was never intended as an application deployment solution, for which you would be far better off using tools which are intended for that purpose.
Since Windows 7 and 8 run the user in a different session to the operating system, any deployment solutions need to be able to take account of this. I very much doubt that Symantec will spend any developer time on this. (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/ha...)
The Ghost Solution Suite 2.5.1 support matrix for Windows 8 is now published on the Symantec support site.

I changed for Acronis: www.acronis.com ...
After all, it seems that Symantec does not give much importance to the product Ghost and its users ...
I used Norton Ghost 15 in Windows 7, the responses of support, that the product does not work on Windows 8 but keeps running in Windows 7 are disrespectful to our intelligence or our suggestion to uninstall Windows 8 and continue using Windows 7 if we are to continue using Norton Ghost? Sincerely, I preferred switch to another solution of Back Up!
Ghost was never intended to be a primary backup tool, and therefore using a product like Acronis for backup is really the best solution to ensure automatic backups.
