I mentioned in an earlier post that I was intending to ghost the 40G drive in my tablet to an 80G drive I have.
Whatever you do, don’t use Ghost 2003 to do that sort of thing.
If you do, then I recommend that you prepare to begin an oddessy of repair to the system.
While trying to recover, I hit the Symantec solution, involving ghreboot.exe and also gdisk.exe. (Make sure that you find the SYMANTEC versions!)
While they have worked for others, they did not for me. So I rebooted with the XP cd in the drive and did a repair.
…or not. FIXMBR took me from "Missing operating system" to something regarding I/O. I followed this with "FIXBOOT".
Luckily, a friend here at work found a wonderful website that deals specifically with the NTLDR problem! (That link will open in a new window, by the way.)
I’m working on the machine that had the problem. Problem solved.
