I forgot to uninstall Deep Freeze before formatting my HDD, Now HDD is dead.
Posted on 2004-09-28
I have two identical PC's i.e. both have exactly the same hardware.(I'll call them PC1 & PC2) I use norton ghost to restore system from one to the other and it works fine. I installed deep freeze on PC1 but I didn't like it so I decided to remove it. I tried to remember the password without any luck so I thought it's easier to transfer the system Image that I already have on HDD/PC2 into the 'frozen' HDD/PC1. I connected it as a slave to PC2 and booted up into XP and transferred (Ghost2k3.exe) for DOS and the *.GHO file ( Image of C: ) and the process looked normal on windows. I put the HDD back in it's original place on PC1 and tried to boot to DOS in order to launch Norton Ghost BUT the bios DID NOT recognize the HDD. Booting up from CD didn't work either and FDISK reported that No Fixed Disks are present. I'm lost and I need help.
Thank you for your time.
