I'm using TI 9.0 (latest ver.) I ran sysprep on the PC that I am returning. I then made a Full image backup of this PC. (PC OS is Windows XP Pro). I now have my new PC (still an IBM, but newer model) and want to restore the syspreped image to it. I booted from the Acronis boot CD and I restored the entire image, 1 partition, entire disk. Restore went fine - no errors. When I now turn on the PC it tries to boot from DHCP (this is normal) and it doens't matter if I wait or hit [Esc] to go on, it will come up with the screen saying "Windows did not end normally last time...". I get the usual options of the 3 types of Safe modes or Start windows normally. It does not matter which option I pick, after a couple seconds the PC will restart and start this whole process over again and again. Anyone have any ideas why it is doing this or how to get it boot on into Windows XP pro? Thanks.
