Yes, it is possible but since you give no idication of the hardware or version of the OS it is not possible to give specifics.

Thanks for the reply. Is it possible to ghost the whole system to a new Harddrive without shutting down the system as this is the production system.

Once again thanks.

1. See my previous post.
2. Maybe, but depends somewhat on other equipment you have available.
