It looks like either the laptop HDD has failed or has become dislodged. Remove the HDD coverplate and ensure the HDD is correctly seated and secure it.

As to the ghosterr.txt problem the biggest cause is a dirty/scratched disc.

Output a ghosterr.txt message when I use the Restore CD's

You can change the default abort file (ghosterror.txt) location and name by specifying the switch -afile=filename where filename contains the path and name of the error file you wish to create.

Example: ghost -afile=c:\errorfile.txt

Please try this switch and post your error file if you are successful.

How to restore the computer using the norton ghost

Use your Norton Ghost boot disk to boot your computer.
Once it's booted it will ask you what you want to do.
Choose to Restore your harddrive and point to where the image is residing on your backup.

It's all pretty self explanatory. It may take several hours, so be patient.

Try cleaning the cd, if no luck; use a friends pc and burn a new copy of the restore cd.

Need software

gho is the extension of backup file format saved by Norton Ghost, that is Norton backup program.
GHO file extension can only be opened with Norton Ghost, and restored on an hard drive, after extraction you can save data on optical support using any CD burner software.

You can download Norton Ghost below:

*.GHO files are Norton Ghost images that are used by some OEM's to create a factory defuault image. When you restore this it should set the pc back to the same condition it was in when u purchased it however this will erase all your personal data on the drive.

If you are getting this error it means that the ghost image you are using to restore the PC is corrupted and cannot be used. eaither the CD is trying to read this data from a corrupted restore partition or the restore disk you have is bad (sometimes the disk may look fine- no scratches or anything and still be bad)

Try checking the disk for scratches or smudges but if you dont find any you can clean off the disk you will have to contact e-machines for a replacement disk.

Continuing formatting trouble

Hi Shawn, It sounds as though your recovery disk has Norton Ghost incorporated into it, thus the call for the Ghosterr.txt file. Most recovery disks are just modified Windows installation CDs and if you boot to them they will immediately go into the Windows recovery which is what Sandrew was trying to walk you thorough. Having said that I?ve found a few other references to this type of issue and has usually been a result of CD read errors. - Try cleaning the recovery disk, if there are severe or numerous on it or if it is dirty that could be your problem. - If that doesn?t do it try cleaning your CD drive with a good commercial cleaner. - If that fails another option is trying a conventional Windows installation CD. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this post.
