RE: ghosted - 80gb to 36gb



I have done almost the same, ghosted to CD-Rs and then restored to a new
disk, had to boot on the rescue disk and chroot as below and run
grub-install, if you read the Norton site, ghost 2003 does not handle grub,
I think ghost 2004 was supposed to handle grub.

Assuming the filesystem is fine, I suspect GRUB's just got a bit annoyed
that
bits of itself have moved.  Boot off the CD in rescue mode, chroot
/mnt/sysimage (or wherever it puts it now), and run grub-install /dev/hda or
wherever your booted disk is, and it should spring back to life.

HTH,
