    I have used norton ghost recovery disks on my last PC with no problems. On
    my latest PC I created a new recovery DVD and have just attempted to use it
    for the first time. Just before it is about to restore I get a warning that
    the bios may not support large hard drives and if I proceed I may not be
    able to access one or more partitions (or words to that effect).
    I have an 80 gig drive (not partitioned) . Obviously it can handle the 80
    gig as I have been using it for ages.
    Do you think I could ignore the warning?
    I don`t want to mess my BIOS or settings up

    If it was workign fine before with a 80GB drive then ignore the
    warning. In future, disable the warning.
