The internal hard drive on my 60GB Dell Inspiron 510 laptop was recently replaced. Until the failure I had made incremental backups of the whole drive using TI Home 10 onto a USB connected external hard drive (120 GB). However, I have been unable to perform a full restore onto the new internal hard drive. I know that my back up data is healthy as I can mount it on a desktop computer running Acronis software. Using the boot CD I tried to restore my C drive image and the master boot record/track 0. All appears to go smoothly but when the computer reboots I got a message: "Windows could not start because of a computer hard drive configuration problem. Could not read from the selected book disk. Check the boot path and disk hardware". At this point I reinstalled the Windows XP OS (from the CD provided when I bought the laptop). When I arrived back into the Windows environment I could see that "My Documents" files from my latest incremental back up have arrived but my software, e.g. MS Office, isn't running. I would be very grateful for help.
