NTLDR is missing after running Norton Ghost???

I imaged my system a few months ago just incase of an emergency. This
week I had an emergency so I attempted a restore from the 7 ghost
disks (DVD+R's) that norton ghost created for me during the imaging of
my system. At about 97% complete on the restore, norton ghosts asked
me for an 8th disk which there was only 7 disks...very wierd so I had
to cancel the restore. Now when I boot up I get the dreaded NTLDR is
missing message. I've performed an FDISK & chose the correct partition
as active but...still get same message. So....I created a norton ghost
boot wizard disk PC-DOS version & ran ghost again. NOW...the restore
gets to the 1st or 2nd disk & norton ghost tells me that the files on
the disk are corrupted which can't be so...any suggestions on what I
should try next guys? Thanks in advance.

If the ghost restore does not complete you having nothing, thats why you
could not find NTLDR, or anything else.

I have found it a little risky to depend on CD's of a split ghost image -
unless your CD writer is on the computer where the images files were
created. I don't know if this applies to your case, but when you transfer
ghost image files across a healthy network, about 10% of the image files
well become corrupted - and there is no recovery solution that I know about.

When I transfer a set of split images across the network for storage or to
write to CD, I copy them across the network twice into two separate folders.
If a single 650meg file was corrupted on one copy process, it has a 90%
chance of being good on the other stored copy.

Yes the CD Writer is on the machine that created the disks.
