remove ghost virtual partition

I installed Norton Ghost 2003 and it created a virtual partition in which it runs.  I am having errors with Ghost and it won't run, and won't let me exit the partition.  HOW DO I REMOVE THE PARTITION?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I would check the Symantec site for the errors you are getting, since you could have issues with booting if this is not done correctly.


I hope this helps !

Use a partition manager like fdisk or similar to delete the extra partition. You'll find a few such tools on the UBCD.

Or Gparted from Rescue CD

None of these answers addressed my problem.  I was not able to get back to Windows to use a partition manager (I have Partition Magic).  The problem was Ghost would only START to boot to Ghost, but not finish and not allow booting to Windows.

The solution was to use my Windows CD, and go through the 'reinstall windows' scenario which got me to the screen where I could delete the partition and make another bootable.

We didn't ask you to get to windows to run those tools. They start directly from their CD's from which you boot from. Those tools on the UBCD are DOS based and GParted is Linux based.
