Whenever I restore an image to a HDD I get a "Non-system disk or disk error, replace and strike any key when ready" or something along those lines every time. I can solve this by attaching the drive to another machine and running windows check disk but it's a lot of work around for an issue that shouldn't be happening.
Is there any solution to this?

Are you restoring the image to the same partition that was imaged? Or to a new HD?
Is the HD in the same computer or being put into a different computer?
SATA or PATA?
What Ghost Options do you select in the restore?
Why are you doing the restores?

Different HD on SATA on a new Computer (it's SATA-SATA, same size drives etc)
Just a normal image-HD restore
Testing it at the moment for a PC backup solution

OK. Is this correct?
Image was created on computer A.
You are restoring the image to computer B.
Are there any hidden partitions in computer A?
In the restore did you select....
Restore master boot record
Set drive active (for booting OS)
Restore original disk signature

That is probably the answer.
If you didn't Restore master boot record with Ghost 10 it didn't matter as a generic MBR was created anyway. But you have to choose both options with Ghost 15.
Please let us know if it works.
