    Hello , i have a litel troubel with Acronis Images Software, and i hope, that someone have an good Idea.
    The Problem:
    My OLD HD from Maxtor have 3days ago an HeadCrash. What a luck that i have some Images on DVD-RAM. I buy a new HD from Western Digital,
    So i load Acronis from the Bootabel CD-ROM And load the Last Image that i have created. THIS IMAGE FILE was creat under WINDOWS 2000 - Not in DOS mode - i hope this is o.k.??
    Well after the Images was writte on my new HD -
    AN Error was on the Screen - "Error Loading Opperating System" -
    I used "FIXMBR" and after that FIXBOOT" but nothing happen.
    Well than i try to use an Older IMAGE , that i cread in reall DOS,MODE.
    ---> NO WINDOWS in background.
    This OLDER IMAGE File works, i know it - because i used it 2 Times after my system was down, but of course on the Old MAXTOR HD.
    Now with the new Western Digital HD i see the Error
    "Error Loading Opperating System" - AND nothing works.
    NO FIXMBR NO FIXBOOT even the install Repair option under W2K dosen't work - allways the same Error.
    I came only to the repair pressedur from windows 2000 , where i must writte my ADMIN Password - BUT no Boot from this new HD is aviable.
    WELL have some one a good IDEA what i can do?
    I don't know - This DATA's are really importend and i couldn't make a new Install from the Windows CD that is no possible.
    The New Western Digital HD have no Errors - i check it - with special tools, NO CHKDSK ore else.What i don't check was an "Just for Fun" Installation of Win2K but i think it will work - i try this later.

    Hello Joe,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Disk Backup Software.

    Please accept our apologies for the delay with the response.

    According to your tests, it looks like Western Digital hard drive is faulty. We therefore recommend that you exchange it to a working one or purchase another replacement disk and try to restore the image once more. Please let us know if the same problem appears in the future. We will certainly provide you with the further instructions.

    Thank you.

    THX for quick answere...
    Well it was Right - But the Hard Disk is Not Out of order... or else
    The Western Digital Hard Disk works good, but only
    If it's Master Or Slave and only as logical Drive - for storage Data.
    Well, my Test's for this Hard Disk was easy.
    Now i know, that the New Hard Disk don't whant to work with the Sec.
    Hard Disk in my System.
    Now i buy a Maxtor Again . And everythink is work perfect.
    Even the Image File That i creat in Windows Mode. Works Good
    No Errors.
    But of course the Image is not new . . So i must reInstall some Programms
    But this is better as ReInstall ALL Programms :)

    The Western Digital Hard Disk i bring it back to the PC Store tomorrow.

    ACRONIS IMAGE Software IS Really Good..
    I try so many outher Images Software - But nobody is better

    I hope that Acronis don't make any Bullshit in the Future.
