I've got a bit of a problem...I actually want to reformat my pc, but I can't.
My system is an Emachines T1840, Intel Celeron, 1.80ghz. with a 40gbhd, running on Windows XP (hope thats enough info to start with )
I've gone through everything needed to reformat. Once it starts the process, I get the following messages from Symantec:
"single user version, cannot do multiple loads"
"cannot open ghosterr.txt"
"invalid dump file"
Now in doing some checking, I've gone to my device manager and noted that my DVD-rom drive is disabled....Microsoft will not re-enable it at all.
I've found this link: http://support.micro...oduct=winxp#kb3 which seems to offer some help as I can follow the procedures up to #6, from there I see nothing showing the file "REG_MULTI_SZ"...although I didn't have this problem with my DVD-rom drive after installing windows XP as it came with my system.
Any help? All Im looking to do is get things working so I can reformat my system and get on with a clean slate. If more info is needed, please let me know Im not very computer literate
Oh and I've also opened my pc up, took out the drive, rebooted and put it back in...which did enable it...until I rebooted to reformat...then the "x" in the device manager was back.
