Bill, I'm delighted you now have help with that Promise card. It's weird as it has booted in the past. I'm sure that you will eventually be able to restore an image. One way or another. You have spent months thinking about this so a few more days won't matter too much. So today you will be attempting a restore to the 40 GB Seagate. Naturally we hope it works but if it doesn't then Christopher_NC has made a good point. To do this I'd create a 138 GB Logical drive in the 138 GB of Unallocated Space on your main Seagate HD. Then write an image of your C: drive to this Logical Drive. Next, make the main Seagate the Slave and add the 40 GB Seagate as the Master and restore the image to the 40 GB Seagate using your TI CD. Remove the main Seagate before booting. I hope you don't have to do this.
