Join our site today to ask your question. Thanks a ton for posting the fix.

I am thinking it has to be something with either of these two files. Note that I happen to store the drivers in \DOS on the floppy, but that's not important as long as the path is correct. Suggestions? Copy and Paste the following into your Boot.ini file and Save: [boot loader] timeout=30 default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS [operating systems] multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect I hope this helps.

In this case, any of the methods described above should help you get out of it. Here is how it actually went down:(1) Formatted 60GB Maxtor DiamondMax Plus HDD as single C: NTFS primary active partition mounted in a USB 2.0 ByteccUSA ME-320U2 external enclosure kit;(2) Formatted You can then move on to fix the problem with minimal fuss, and get on with distributing the virus known as "Windows".

Googled abt for soln, and found this thread. http://scifijumpgate.com/yet-another/yet-another-pc-won-t-power-on-thread.html I'm not sure why Ghost is causing problems. However, the problem is that our new computers we want to ghost have no floppy disk drives so I need to make a boot CD to use ghost. I have created Ghost boot images with network drivers for all the various network configurations on my network.

The network drivers are a whole other issue, and the principal reason I no longer use GHOST.

The current build of the OS on the laptop is disposeable.

I think the above Radified threads discuss the various issues. Show Ignored Content Page 1 of 3 1 2 3 Next > As Seen On Welcome to Tech Support Guy! Choose to zero the EMBR. Thanks for this thread.

subfolder in the path outlined in blue above and copy the target '*.sys' files therein. It supports all 4 formats (-/+R & -/+RW). To use Ghost 2003 with Win7 in an acceptable manner you will need to edit your BCD store like this... This is why my CD's are bootable - It uses the Ghost Virtual Partition method.

My bootable floppy contains the following: -||GHOST ---GHOST.EXE -||NET ---B57.dos ---DIS_PKT.DOS ---NETBIND.COM ---PROTMAN.DOS ---PROTMAN.EXE ---PROTOCOL.INI -AUTOEXEC.BAT -COMMAND.COM -CONFIG.SYS -HIMEM.SYS -IO.SYS -MOUSE.COM -MSDOS.SYS -RAMDRIVE.SYS Any quick resolution would be great. Symantec says to use Gdisk, but that doesn't work either, apparently since it's not a real disk partition. Choose the middle one (Goingby memory here sorry) and tell it you wanna make a Boot Disk.

Yes, Jen does seem to be in the know. Merlin - thanks for the USB info.

Now you have a CD that will allow you to boot into Ghost, but contains dozens of other utilities as well, like hard drive diagnostic programs, various FDisk utilities, MemTest, etc.

My Win98 system is 3 years old, and I am assuming it is USB 1. If a UAC prompt is displayed, click the Yes button.
