Satellite M45-S269 - A:\GHOST output. ERR during the recovery procedure

I am trying to perform a full system restore. I get to the part that says "exit A:\GHOST. MADE A MISTAKE? »

If I do Y or N the message says "cannot read files. If the problem persists, contact TOSHIBA support center or contact symantec technical support.
Then the recovery fails.




Looks like it's not possible to read from the recovery disc.
How did you perform the recovery procedure?

You have inserted the right recovery disk and started from this disk. Right?
Usually, recovery is expected to begin and the installation should run smoothly

If this is not the case then recovery disks would be destruction, scratched, etc.

Just a question; is it possible to start using other disk bootable CD original Win XP or Linux?
Select this check box, because it would allow to discover exactly what s wrong

    You have a clean Windows operating system?
    If so, try to boot from your original Windows CD and try to reinstall the operating system.

    The Qosmio G30 laptop supports RAID and you need to include the RAID driver by pressing the F6 key during the Windows Setup process.

    Second question; have you changed the RAID settings in the BIOS?

    Windows was unable to save all the data for the file\Device\Harddisk\volume2\I386\OEMBIOS. Bl_. The data has been lost.

    Please help me, anyone know what I can do?

    Please answer quickly... I need my phone tomorrow :*(

    Welcome, Tobias Erdmann


    I guess you have you used original restore CD that was shipped with this laptop. That's why I put t thinks it is a CD problem but maybe with your HARD drive.
    Have you tried to format the whole HARD drive? Delete all partitions and format the HARD drive before installation

    If the OS install will not work or will divide in the middle of the procedure, then the material should be checked. The A100 is not very old unit and therefore the guarantee must be valid. If a new HARD drive is necessary you should get it for free.

    Good luck and please post if you know more details

  • Message 'Unfair Machine' on Satellite M60 during the recovery procedure


    I would be very grateful if someone could offer me a solution or a Board with reinstalling Windows from the Toshiba product recovery DVD. After obtaining the motherboard on my Toshiba M60 (code PSM60A-0C7OOD) replaced I get the machine wrong message when I try to reinstall Windows.

    I read through the threads of the DMI was updated, but after trying to start the boot CD, I got the error message saying that 'no id of corresponding platform was found' and so am not able to do work. I don't know if it's because the Toshiba M60 is not supported by the dmi updates...

    I noticed that, in the Information System, the model of the system is listed as 0000000000000000000. Have I reason to think that this is the problem and if I could change that for the correct model number of product recovery DVD will work correctly.

    Thank you very much, Mike.

    Hello Mike

    I'm no expert, but as far as I know, a BAD MACHINE message will appear if the string DMI and the label on the image n t game. In my opinion, you should contact the service again and let write them DMI information. Obviously they forget.

  • Equium A100-147: I get an error during the recovery procedure

    Hi again,

    I had trouble with my equium a100-147.
    I tried a restore, but the disc is scratched so I phoned in ESL and it snet me a new recovery image.

    I tried the new recovery disk and am now errors when I boot the disk.

    error is

    "internal error crc file: \WINDOWS\$NtUninstallKB895200$\msdtctm.dl.

    any suggestions are welcome. get really annoyed with my machine as my warranty expired only one month

    Thank you

    Hmm... I studied a bit and it looks a bit like a malfunction of the partition.
    It would be desirable to boot from the original CD of Microsoft XP and to start the repair console.
    Then you could try these various commands which help to repair the boot manager, repair errors, locate bad sectors and recover readable information.

    -bootcfg /rebuild
    -chkdsk /r

    If this does not help, you should erase the entire partitions and must format the HARD drive in NTFS file system. Then access the BIOS and set it to the default value.
    Once this procedure tries to start again on the new recovery CD!

    Good bye

  • Satellite A30: HDD size after the recovery procedure and Defrag

    I have a Satellite A30 and just did a complete reinstall from the recovery of the product disks. My question relates to the amount of disk space hard should be resumed aftre reinstall it.
    My hard drive is 4.95 full GB according to the procedure that is much higher than I expected.

    Also, after reviewing the reader with Defragmenter I seem to have twice taken up training with Greens, unmovable files like Blue contiguous files. Unmovable files is there and if not how to I remove them?

    It's where I guess that extra hard disk space is lost when it is lost?

    Thank you


    It's not easy to say exactly how much space should be taken after the recovery procedure.
    I have so much that I know on the recovery CD, you will find the whole operating system Windows XP, driver Toshiba and utilities as well as additional software like OneNote, WinDVD, etc.
    This additional software could take as much space on the disk outside the OS.

    Blue not moveable files belong to the Windows operating system, and as a result, the files are placed together.

    Hay @ all. My name is ahmet.

    I'm from the Germany. I have a problem.

    I bought a toshiba laptop and I think it's a very good laptop.
    But I don't like Vista. It uses to much space, much grafic and a lot more.
    So I tried to install my old windows XP Professional sp2. Here's the problem:

    During installation, Xp procres say there is no hard drive.
    Hmm, I thought I should have a look on other forums. There, they said to integrate a sata driver on the xp cd.
    But I don't understand the using nLite to use.

    Could you show me how I had to reinstall my old XP?
    I have a lot of files to my laptop and I change some settings in Vista so that I could not use internet.
    If I want to reinstall vista with the recovery cd, it would remove all folders, photo ect.
    I use only my other old computer.

    I would be very happy if you could help me.
    Thank you very much!!! If you have an answer I would be too happy

    my system:

    Toshiba - Satellite A200-26J

    The nLite is a freeware program that helps you to integrate the SATA (Intel matrix Storage Manager) driver in the original XP operating system.

    If you want to know how to use nLite software, then glasses a bit.
    There are many websites that explain how to use nLite.

    (Driver SATA) Intel Storage Manager can be downloaded from the Toshiba driver page.

    Last month, I created a new XP CD using the nLite.
    I've included a few pilots, SP2 and some patches it of really not very difficult.

    As I said... Scope of protection is a key ;)

    I tried to restart, but now, it just on the screen stays black (the monitor is not powered, as if the system was not running), all LEDS are powered with flashing 'drive access', the led on the DVD Player keeps flashing making a noise every 3 seconds or more.

    I read on the forum that there may be no solution but to take it to an authorized service provider but I'm willing to take any possible solution before you do.

    Thanks for any advice.


    Hi, mate

    Unfortunately, you need to be reflash the Bios as something that went wrong during the update. You should contact the Asp and ask them to reflash. There is no other way to get your laptop to work.

    The reason why laptop doesn t start (error bootmgr) while the installation is stopped with a BSOD. If you need to reinstall the laptop again.

    It looks like a USB problem because I found this in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

    If you have connected the external USB devices to the laptop, remove them.
    In the worst case, there is something wrong with the USB ports or controller and the motherboard must be exchanged.
