ACER Laptop Image Restore Problems
Posted on 2006-07-21
Hi. I have an Acer 1680 series laptop with XP Home Edition. I have put in a new 80Gb drive where the old failed drive was a 60Gb. I partitioned it 40Gb / 38Gb(remaining space) and proceeded to load the 3 image disks which ran Norton Ghost to install a Fat32 (!) image to the c drive. On rebooting, the drive is not recognised as I have just a flashing cursor on booting. I have checked the bios settings, they are fine, set to boot CD-Rom then HDD. Mounting the drive in another PC I can see a successful Ghost session to the primary partition but it is not booting in the laptop. Any ideas?
