I had a working Win 2k OS running smoothly on Drive C, with a small D partition. I tried Norton 2004 Ghost and backed up Drive D to a CD. Ghost created a bootable CD with the proper backup file to restore D. I booted with the CD and restored Drive D as a test run, and selected the RESET option when the restoration was done.
NOW i can't boot up my machine.
It does not give me the option of using the F8 key.
In fact: "Verifying DMI pool data" comes up and then it freezes.
I can, and did, run Windows Setup from the Win 2k CD and did a Restore (Quick and Manual), without success. I do not have a Emergency Repair disk.
I also did an "in-place" upgrade, but the same result! Just as Win tries to restart, the system hangs.
