Compatibility issues

I regularly use several Norton Products that I want to use in Windows 7.
Norton discusses Windows 7 compatibility here and here.

Norton Ghost 14.0: 
It won't install from CD. Norton says "update plans to be announced", Amazon  claimed Ghost 15 would be released 11/16/09.  On 11/16,  Amazon changed the web page to say "Usually ships within 1 to 2 months" and removed the "This item will be released on November 16, 2009" statement that was present previously. I will attempt to get a date commitment from Norton, and depending on the answer I will consider Acronis True Image Home 2010 as an alternate.

Norton Ghost 15.0:
This is the user guide to this product that has not been released. A search on Norton's site does not find any reference to Ghost 15, but the user guide is on line.

Norton SystemWorks Standard Edition 12.0:
Norton says "update plans to be announced".  This forum entry provides a workaround I haven't tried.

Norton AntiVirus 2009:
This product installed fine and is working.

Norton (PowerQuest) PartitionMagic 8.0: Norton says this is not compatible. For my purposes, PartitionMagic is functionally replaced by Windows Computer Management, so this is not a great loss.
