hi @ all....
got the same problem... :-/
i searched all over the net, but i was sure that this is a ghost problem! and now i found this post...
ok, to my configs:
also ghost 9
also kaspersky av 5
i installed a new system, end wanted to back it up, so i installed ghost 9, and... all problems like above appeared.
but i yet got no solution for that.
ghost is such a fine thing, but this problems is had the sys installation before also. this time i tried it again, and the same problem. i think that the time before, i got no kaspersky av installed, probably symantec.
this is a baaaaaaaaaaad problem :-(
to my hardware specs: got a asus m2400n notebook.
