    Welcome to TSG....

    GHOSTERR.TXT is a Symantec file from Norton Ghost and if you are using disks made from Norton Ghost to restore your system I think the disks miight be corrupt or you arte missing some thing to do the job.

    My suggestion is to call Symantec Tech Support and find out how to fix this, or get the eMachines restore disk out and run that to get started.
