You will see an earlier post further down the forum http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=130609 of my attempts to recover from the NTLDR missing error. Well nothing worked, including Acronis ISO file that repairs the MBR, in fact it gave me the new error of "no operating system" when I used it. I will now completely re-install win xp media center and then try again since I like the product but if I get the same result then I cannot spend any more time with it. So please can someone suggest the steps to test TI Worksation (yesterdays build) here. I want to be able to do a backup of the windows partition, and also a separate backup of data from the other partition and drive. My PC Dell dimension 9150 2 X 160 gb drives originally striped 0 RAID but now set as single drives in Combination mode in the BIOS - is this the correct way to do it? C drive partitioned - 40 Gb for Win Xp and remainder as a separate partition. Is 40 too big? I just thought I would leave a bit of space as Win always seems to grow. Second drive full size, no partition. I chose TI over Ghost since TI can restore single folders as well as complete images. Any help greatly appreciated.
