Primary and "ghost virtual" Partitions
After using Norton Ghost 2003 I tried to startup my computer, but I got a message saying "missing operating system." I went to the Norton support page and it said:
"Examine the information to find the partition number of the Ghost Virtual Partition and the partition number of the drive's primary partition. The primary partition is usually the partition to which you installed Windows.
Gdisk 1 /del /p:y
In place of letter y, use the partition number of the Ghost Virtual Partition. This command deletes the Ghost Virtual Partition.
Gdisk 1 /act /p:x
In place of the letter x, use the partition number of drive's primary partition. This command makes the primary partition active.
Remove the floppy disk and CD, and then restart the computer."
I am not a genius (or anything close) when it comes to computers and I was wondering if anyone could help me with with what my "primary partition" number and my "ghost virtual partition" numbers are..Thanks, Brian
And by the way, when I try using Gdisk my computer shows
Disks:1 Partitions:4 Cylinders:9733
Heads:255 Sectors:63 Mbytes:76351.6
