    I recovered my computer from Norton Ghost 14 and after the POST all I get is a flashing white line at the top left of the screen. Almost like the OS is not installed, but It was definetly set up to recover the OS using Norton. Could it be that the Hard Drive just isn't set as the Primary drive?

    The HDD shows up in the BIOS as the correct boot device.
