Boot Disk Failure

    I have used Norton Ghost for several years to clone a 2nd HD for
    backup purposes.

    Out of the blue I have started receiving this message when Ghost shuts
    down windows and attempts to run in DOS.

    Once it happens I have to cut the power to restart the system and it
    refuses to start again (continues to hang on startup) until I make a
    change in the HD configuration, such as removing the 2nd drive, and
    then when it starts it tries to run the clone.

    A search and read of the Norton site has left me with no clue.

    Can anyone suggest where to look?
