norton ghost 12 installation problems

by queens gambit / December 8, 2008 9:44 PM PST

I recently purchased norton ghost 12 without checking the system requirements. I thought my computer was large enought to cope with any installation.

My computer is a mesh computer 32 bit operating system with windows xp 150 giga of memory.

I thought I had made a good installation when an error message came up on screen. It said that the norton recovery disc held 512mb but my computer only had 448mb of RAM.

Can this problem be overcome or do I take the norton ghost back to the shop and ask for refund?

help appreciated.

Add More RAM..

512 MB for Windows XP is very minimal.. Add another 512 MB, or more, and you'll see better performance out of the computer and the program should work as it should. Yes, it may require some money to be spent, but it should be worth it..

Hope this helps.
