The Symantec Recovery Disk CD lets you start a computer that can no longer run the Windows operating system. Symantec Recovery Disk is included with Norton Ghost. When you boot your computer using the Symantec Recovery Disk CD, a simplified version of Windows starts that runs a recovery environment. In the recovery environment, you can access the recovery features of Norton Ghost.
