Fail to boot after doing disk to disk copy

Post by Guest » Mon Mar 02, 2009 12:44 pm

I am currently evaluate the R-Drive Image software. I am testing the disk to disk copy either through bootup disk or within the windows. The copy was successful but when I connect the new drive to the pc. It failed to boot and only give me a cursor on the screen during the bootup process. I did choose "primary - Active" for parition before the disk copy process. Any suggestion on what else can I try to make it work?

I have the same issue. I made several images during a reinstall of XP Pro SP3 and restoring the single drive just gives me a blinking cursor in the upper left of the screen. I fixed it by booting into the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console and running fixboot c:.

The bigger issue is why won't Drive-Image 4.4 build 4404 restore properly???
