Ghost boot disk does not load
Mar 14th, 2011 at 8:07pm
 
My Vista laptop has been locking up so I need to restore it ASAP if not sooner.

When I boot from the Ghost 14 disc, the boot process seems to proceed normally. It says Windows is Loading Files and the progress bar moves across. Then it shows Microsoft Corporation with the little green scroll bar moving from left to right. But then it goes to a black screen, the only thinig on it is the mouse cursor, which moves around ok, but nothing ever appears.

I tried 2 Ghost 14 disks, and a Ghost 15 disk. Same thing.

I ran Memtest86, it reported no errors. I ran chkdsk /r and it was ok.

Any ideas?
I've got to get this running tonight or early tomorrow if it is fixable, so any ideas appreciated.

Thanks

Has the Ghost 14 CD booted in the past?

Does the Vista DVD boot?

What sort of lockups are you getting with Vista?

Brian,

It turns out the problem was a bad hard drive, odd as it seems.

But there is a new problem, I created a separate thread for it.

Thanks for the reply.
