I faced a few problems in installing Windows XP. Setup Halted 3 times
just before adding start-up menu items. I had to set all the boot
devices to CD and got thru the installation. But, now I want to back
up my newly installed OS using Norton Ghost 2003. But, I have a big
problem. It won’t do jack no matter what I try to do. It gives this
message and dies.
Looks rather like its having a problem reading the virtual
partition dll properly or extracting its contents to C:\TEMP
I'd concentrate on the XP install problem. The ghost
problem is likely just a symptom of a stuffed system
and there is no point in kludging around that, you need
to fix the real problem that is stuffing up the install.
