    Maybe your 40gig isnt fully compatible with your motherboard. What harddrive did you get?

    I dont think seagates are compatible with your harddrive. Try a different hard drive like maxtor.

    It means Ghost has encountered a problem and (obviously) can't continue. See here for more info (and where to find the log file) and then read the log file once you find it.

    If its not harddrive compatibility, it could be bad restore disk. Try a different copy of your restore disk, and eMachines can replace your restore disk for $20.00.
