I have a system running windows server 2003 and Sequel Server 2005. It has two 300Gbyte harddrives that are mirrored. They are each partitioned into a 20G C: drive and a 260G D: drive. I have Acronis True Image Echo server with Universal restore build 8,203. I wish to do a full backup of both drives to a USB HD that I can restore, in an emergency, to a unused system with a single 300Gbyte HD. I will run my business in a stand-alone mode on that system until I can replicate the necessary hardware environment. I have performed the backups and verified them by mounting and reading individual files but when I restore the backup to my new test machine I cannot get the new machine to boot into Windows. The reboot process does not get to a splash screen, it just keeps rebooting. I can boot from the rescue CD into Acronis but not into Windows. I can do the restore but not reboot. Can anyone shed any light on why this is occurring and how to correct it?
