Good Morning, I have a new Dell Dimension 9150 PC (same as the Dell XPS 400). I am using Windows XP with 1GB Ram. The PC came with a Samsung 80GB hard drive, which had System Restore set to on. I also have a Western Digital 250GB My Book external drive. I have installed TI 9.0 and updated it with the current 3677 build. I have also been successful with creating a TI rescue bootable CD. I have been successful at creating full validated images of the 80GB drive using the bootable CD and while in Windows (although I have never restored an image, only mounted to see that it was readable). I have read many posts on this very helpful forum and read the 81 page TI user manual. I understand the intended uses for backup vs cloning. But have also seen recommendations for using an image to move to a new larger internal drive (some have had bad experiences with cloning). I want to install my new 160GB Seagate SATA internal hard drive and transfer all data from the current 80GB Samsung SATA hard drive to the new 160GB drive and boot from the new 160GB drive. As mentioned, I have already imaged (using the TI Rescue CD which I created with the 3677 build), validated and mounted an image of the current 80GB drive. When installing the 160GB drive, Seagate had me use their DiscWizard. This program got the new drive recognized by the PC, formatted the drive (one 160GB partion), and copied all the files from the old drive to the new drive. After this process, I was able to remove the 80GB drive and boot from the 160GB drive. The problem is that MS Office 2000 stopped functioning due to an unlocatable update loader packet (or something like that), which I was able to fix with a utility I downloaded from Micrsoft and by reinstalling the program. Also, for several file types, files and/or shortcuts had the wrong icons showing (which I fixed by spending alot of time in the File Types folder). Everything else seemed to work (2 PC home network, internet, McAfee Security Suite, etc.) except for two things that I have discovered so far. First, the new drive has only the primary partition. My old drive had 3 partitions - Fat16 47.03MB, Fat32 3.478GB, and NTFS(C 70.97GB. The other problem I noticed last night was that System Restore has a problem loading on the new hard drive (it worked fine on the old HD). When I try to enter System Restore through Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore, System Restore does not load and the PC wants to report the loading error I assume to Micrsoft. This makes me feel very uncomfortable with the way Seagate moved my data to the new drive. Now that I have taken so much of everyone's time with the above, I hope that you can tell me the best way to fix the 160GB drive (not my first choice) or to redo the data transfer (restore image or cloning) in a way that everything works with no need for me to fix anything (Microsoft Office, icons, system restore, etc.). Sorry for the long post. I wanted to make sure I gave all the details so that you have all you need to share your knowledge. Thank you in advance.
