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.

My asus eep pc 701 sd its says reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key ive attached a external drive and booted from the disc it stops after 10...


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.

Its a RAM issue. you should open your laptop and reinsert your RAM. If you cant do so then go to nearest service center and ask him to reinsert RAM. okay

Laptop will not boot when turned on


Go into bios and make sure that your cd player is set up as the first boot up device. Then insert the disk, reboot and follow the prompts to install the OS. When thru get the drivers you need and you are good to go!

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

*.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.

I was trying to do a full system recovery


I HAVE A E-MACHINE. If you have any C/files they will be lost ... But go ahead and un-plug power for at least one-minute. reapply power and insert the 1st Restore disc and continue through all your discs. If it asks for administrator it will cue you to type in a NAME for the user and a password. Make sure you save the password somewhere. It sounds like one of the discs did not properly load and caused a failure.

Its worth a try. Lucky you have a e-machine. Other computers like Dell dont give you the restore discs and you have to pay for Windows XP or Vista. Or take it back where you bought it.

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.
