I am trying to restore a total system image to a new hard drive in my laptop after my old hard-drive failed. I have a home office and need to leave on a business trip today with my laptop. I re-loaded the XP Operating system and then went to the Acronis emergency boot cd. When I tried the reload image function, the system does not recognize the external hard-drive and the four files in which the image was stored. How do I get my image reloaded? Booting to XP allows me to copy the image files directly to my laptop C:\ drive. Can I load the four files to the "safe" Acronis partition and then reload from that partition?
