    Hello

    I've this problem:

    I made a image from my C: Drive on my Dell notebook (internal ide hdd).

    Then i restored the image using TrueImage bartPE on a external USB Harddisk. i also restored the MBR on the USB harddisk. Then i changed the boot.ini on the usb hdd.
    Now my problem:

    When i boot from the usb hdd i see the WinXp logo and then a bluescreen comes up with this message: stop: 0x0000007b,0xf7b24528,0xC0000034.

    Can someone please help meo_O

    Sounds an interesting gadget. Have you any links so I can have a look at it ?
    It should sell well if one can load it with Windows XP or a complete copy of a main drive and the boot from it to continue working if the normal HDD has gone south.

    Don't worry I have found it under a different spelling.

    I do not see how it is relevant to Acronis backups. It seems to be completely different hardware/software solution in a box. Probably only provides a single backup at a time and is fairly expensive.

    I will definitely stick with my multiple image/swappable hard drive combination. Much more flexibility and security possible.

    My main point was that it was possible to boot from a USB HDD.
    It has saved my bacon on several occasions, fast and hassle free.
    I also use it as a backup for all other things such as pictures,downloded programme exe's etc. etc.
    I've had it for two years and very happy with it. Prior to it's purchase I had tried Acronis but now 'No thanks'.

    Hello all,

    Thank you for using Acronis Backup Software

    To itseme:
    In fact you do not need to edit boot.ini file to boot from your external drive. After restore you only need to configure BIOS to boot from USB device.
    If this issue still persists you may need to contact Microsoft Support Team.

    Thank you

    It may be worth pointing out that your motherboard must support USB2 boot.
