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.

It sounds to me that unfortunately you have an error on your recorded CD and there will be nothing you can do to repair that.
The installation of Norton should not cause the problem itself an error on the hard drive will usually cause that problem.

Id like to clone my hard drive including all programs & OS, is it possible? Thanks

This is usually possible using Norton Ghost and a second PC for the ghosting process. Depending on what Operating System you are running, will determine which version of ghost you will need to purchase.

I can not detach my IBM Think pad 2662 lap top from the driver

I had the same issue. Here's what I did. Not sure if it will work for you. But give it a try.
1) turn on the machine and press "F2" to go into set up.
2) Press alt-p seven times to go to the last page.
3)Press the down arrow to highlight HDD password. Set a password as instructed and reboot the machine.
4) You can remove this password later once your machine starts fine.

Even if you didn't get try this too.

1. Make bootable CD which contains Norton Ghost or other disk image software
2. Boot your system using bootable CD with Norton Ghost software, u can use Hiren's CD ISO image. If u don't know about hiren just google it.

2. Once you boot up , open Norton Ghost click LOCAL-> PARTITION->FROM IMAGE

3. Now "look in" for "[DellRestore]FAT drive" and select this drive (this is recovery partition)

4. Now go to "IMG" folder and select FI.GHO file

5. Click Open and there you go... Process started

first make a image of the partition using norton ghost. (you cand find it on a hirens boot cd), next uninstall the tray utility. if it is still the same problem, try reinstalling the operating system. if not reinstall the utility and see if it works. if it doesn't works and you don't want to reinstall the operating system, remake your partion from the image created initially using norton ghost

I need to upgrade HD for dell inspiron 9400. How can I copy old HD keeping original factory config?

Download Hiren's disk and on teir their are heaps of cloning tools. My favourit is Nortons Ghost. This will make an image of your hard drive and burn them onto a dvd for you and once you have done that install your new HD, boot of the Hirens disk, start Nortons ghost then burn the image of your old HD onto the new one and then you can continue your computing from where you left off from.

Ibm thinkpad T40 Hard Drive change out

After fdisk and format you need to ensure that operative system is installed into yor hard drive. Using ghost you restore the image disk by booting from ghost image CD if you made a bootable image disk. Ensure Bios is set up to boot from CD.
If you used Norton Ghost ensure you captured the image of full bootable original hard disk drive for same computer. If it does not boot after restoring ghosted image, than the image it is probably not complete. If hard disk image is not good, easiest thing to do is using Windows install CD to installl again operative system, then you eventually restore ghost image.

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.
