You used Ghost to clone or restore an image file of a triple-boot or quadruple-boot system to another drive.  Two of the operating systems work fine, but the third or fourth will not boot.



Ghost supports cloning computers with dual-boot operating systems outside of the Console such as through boot media.  The Ghost Console only supports the cloning of single boot Operating Systems.

Ghost may clone triple-boot or quadruple-boot computers by using the -IA or -IR switch; however, cloning triple-boot or quadruple-boot systems are not supported by Symantec. For more information on these switches, see the document Switches: Sector copy. Also, cloning systems with other boot loaders or managers, other than the NT Boot loader, is not supported.
