I used True Image v9 2289 to image my C drive that is on my DELL notebook. The ENTIRE drive. Contains the Dell diagnostic partition as well as my C partition which contains XP SP2. The backup went fine. No errors, verified just fine. I then restored this image to a Toshiba 80GB notebook hard drive that I use with a USB2IDE adaptor. The restore also completed with no errors. My notebook allows me to boot from a USB device, so no problem with this. However, went I boot from the USB device I get the Windows XP boot screen and then I get a BSOD with a STOP: 0x0000007b error code. Has anyone successfully booted XP from a USB2 device? Or is this an exercise in futility? I was hoping that I could create a test XP environment on a USB2 hard drive to test out all sorts of things without harming my production drive.
