Please be more clear on the detail of your problem...

Boot the PC with the PartedMagic Live CD, use the Partition Editor tool on that CD and select the normal partition from which Windows should boot from (ghost has probably added it's own small mini partition from which the system is booting from). Right click that partition and select "Manage Flags". Now make a check box on the "Boot" option. Then try a normal boot again.

@Rediers:
my original problem is norton ghost made mini partition it made "C:\" and windows shifted on "D:\" every time when i restart my machine it goes on norton i want to boot my windows normally as it was before but now it is not happening. when im trying to boot from norton CD it gives my error boot fail

Don't know what to do and restore my old OLD :(
rindiCommented:
First, why download an old version if a new one is out? The current version is 6.7. Once downloaded you have an iso file. You then use a tool like infrarecorder (or another CD burning utility that can burn iso files to CD's) to burn the iso to a CD:

http://infrarecorder.org/

Use the "Write Image" option.

Then you boot the server with that CD.

You then should get into a GUI. On that GUI there is an icon called "Partition Editor". Double Click that to start it. Then you should be able to select your HD and see the partitions. Just select the one that would be the OS partition, right click on it, select "Manage Flags" and set the "boot flag" to on. After that reboot the server without the CD.

@rindi:

so which version ur recommending ? you have any website where i can down fast ??? please ...


Thanks
rindiCommented:
Always the newest version, so 6.7. Just get it from the downloads section in the Link I posted, it is the first file mentioned (as it is a zip file you must when it has been downloaded, unpack the zip file to get an iso file). As it is a small distro the download shouldn't take long, and sourceforge who hosts the files looks automatically for the best download source for your location.

im in partition Editor but there is one partition showing "unallocated" my full hard-disk
rindiCommented:
Ar you using RAID? If yes, what RAID controller is it? Do you see several HD's when you select the drives drop down within partition editor (that's on the right side of the tool, where there is a drive icon and something like /dev/xxx). What do those drives show up as?
xeondxbAuthor Commented:
no im not using raid ... just a simple server with 2 hard disks and i unplug other harddsk so there is only one hard disk 160GB
rindiCommented:
Click on the drive icon in Partition Editor, make a picture of it and attach it.
