Can't restore disk image
« on: January 22, 2014, 11:51:29 AM »
I have used Macrium Reflect to restore a disk image.

I have always restored from an image on an external drive to my C: drive with no problems at all.

When I tried to restore to another drive, Macrium does not show any drives to restore to nor can it find the image that is on a USB external drive.

Does it matter if the image is from an IDE drive and is being restored to a SATA drive ?

Any ideas as to the problem ?

Thanks.
Take care,

It was originally a ext2 partition but I changed it to NTFS.

does the partition format ?
if you open Partition Manager, you can see all visible partitions
if it shows up there, it should also show up with Reflect

I don't have Windows on the hard drive that I want to restore to.

The drives all show up in Linux.

If you are booting from a CD you might need to change the BIOS SATA settings from RAID/AHCI mode to IDE mode.
Lots of restore programs don't have SATA controller drivers and won't see a SATA drive unless it's "Legacy IDE" or similar.

I got the image restored.

It boots to XP, but then shuts down.

I think it happens because all the hardware is different from the original.

if that's the case, it may not pass WPA authentication
