impact of factory IMAGE overwritten by GHOST before first neat setup & shutdown.

Lenovo ThinkCentre with Windows 7 PREINSTALLED was just unpacked and attempted for another Windows OS using Ghost buid - (norton). Result :- on reboot you get a beep and then repeatition of process after logo display. Is it that first set up changes flash-bios too...

Re: impact of factory IMAGE overwritten by GHOST before first neat setup & shutdown.

You must be sure to select the option in Ghost to overwrite the MBR for the image to mount properly. By imaging the drive, you have also lost the recovery partition. The F11 option will no longer show up on the boot screen.
