Ghost Restore "Single User"
Posted on 2006-06-22
Trying to help someone by 'phone.
They need to restore their system using the restore disks provided by the manufacturer.
Desktop is an Advent 3411. There are 3 restore CDs & it sounds like this is based on Ghost.
First disk boots but then there is an error message "Single User Version - Cannot do multiple loads".
Turns out the machine was restored with these disks about 12 months ago.
Question: How does the machine know? The CDs are inert so there must be a file or partition sitting on the desktop that the CD has checked to find the restore has already been done. Any ideas what to reset so the machine can be restored again?
