    My archive stored on my second hard drive has been verified several times, but when i attempt a restore, it freezes at random intervals during each attempt. I got as close as 5 minutes remaining..... and as little into a restore as 3 mins.....Can anyone helpo_O?? Can there be an error that ATI does not see during veriafication o_O?
    PLEASE SHARE IF YOU KNOW

    Bit of a long shot, but has your archive been prepared from a scheduled task that has been edited?
    Your TI version and build number would be a help.

    Thanks XPILOT
    It's ver 7 build 572 and the archive was made by me and verified and not changed. There is a second archive ...not the one i need ....that restores perfectly...it is a small archive 1.7g while the troublesome one is 17g Both are verified several times. Last nite it said that the restore was successfull....the first time in about 20 trys....but when it tried to boot... windows said there was a hardware problum possibly. I have up to this point been a big fan of acronis recommending to many.Any Ideas

    Version 7 is before my experience started with TI. However even though it is an old version it should still work.
    Can you give, as near as possible, the wording of the error message? Is the image of the whole of your main drive or just some of its partitions?

    Thanks Xpilot, Version 7 has always worked great,I don't think its the program since the other image will load properly. From what I can remember it was a black screen and the message was something like "Windows has failed to boot it could be a hardware configuration problem consult with your hardware documentation blah, blah, blah...
    It wasn't an error generated by acronis.
    I suspect the problem lies in the archive itself but as I stated it verifies successfully repeatedly. Any ideas??
    Or can you post this so that others can contribute.
    Thanks,
    Poko

    It appears likely that your boot record is missing or corrupt. This could happen if you did not image the whole disk originally. Depending on the operating system that you are using there are ways of fixing this.

    Hello poko,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Disk Backup Software.

    We are sorry for the delayed response.

    Could you please clarify which image archive you have successfully restored, the one that "freeses" during the restoration or the second small 1.7 GB archive? Did you use Acronis True Image Bootable Rescue Media or did you use Acronis True Image in Windows? Did you create the image of the entire hard drive or only the system partition? Please explain your step-by-step actions which you took to restore the image archive.

    As for the error message on bootup it as probably cased by incorrect boot.ini file (boot.ini file is missing or invalid). Therefore, you can try to rebuild the boot.ini file manually or use "bootcfg /rebuild" command from the Windows XP Recovery Console to fix the issue. Please take a look at this article by Microsoft.

    Thank you.
