I have tried using RAW data, & Volume Shadow Serv too.
Do I have to create the image using a 2nd computer?
I am storing the images on an attached HD ("My Book" via USB).
Is there a special way that I am suppose to restore the image.
I am using the free version of DIX so there is no support.
Let me add some more to this:
I am some what baffled by the complexity of this project. There are various ways you can create the image & more ways to restore the image.
I tried the Disk to disk option but that didnt help at all. The system w/ the 40G HD install couldnt find an "IDE Disk". I hit F1 & it found it. I hit F1 again & then it would hang on the Windows XP with the bluescreen background. You never got the Welcome to Windows.
I started over. (again)
I removed a storage HD (120G) from the system
I installed the 40G in its place
I have the orig 13G HD as the master
formated 40G HD
Restored a an image created by DIX
Restarted system on old 13G HD; system found new 40GHD
made 40G HD Active
REmoved old 13G HD & moved 40G HD to Master
Config screen come up & says there is no "IDE Disk" but list my 2 dvd players
Finds the 40G HD
hit F1 & it boots & I see the whole 40G of the HD
I shut down & reinstall the 120G storage drive & the system comes back & says no IDE Drive
I hit F1 & the it list only the 40G HD
I hit F1 & it the only list the 120G HD
i hit F1 & then it just keep on cycling back through looking for a boot sector
The 120G HD never shows as an active partition.
I found out that I am able to run the system with the 120G HD attached as a USB drive. I just dont like using my USB ports for that purpose.
