I have a hard drive that was originally formatted Win2000 (ie limit 160G) I upgraded to WinXP. Partition is still 127G. Today I have used the latest TI and created an image. I want to use this to create a bootable disk that is the size of my new drive, all on one partition. I hae tried this several ways today and am looking for assistance. first, made new logical partition with TI and did not copy the MBR record. could see it fine in the working machine, blue screen 'cannot read bootable media' when I try to boot from it seconde, read forum. followed directions to copy image one piece at a time, but all in the same operation. i.e. copy the data part, and say I want the partition larger, then say I have more to add, then choose the MBR and it says it will do all of this in one operation. disk is readable within the existing machine, but not bootable third, gave up and tried to just create the image as-is because I saw on this forum someone recommended to do this and then later to merge the partitions. I tried this by purchasing and downloading the Disk Director. the disk is bootable at the 126G exact image, but when I merge it is no longer bootable advice?
