    Hi, I created a full image of a hard drive. I have replaced the hard drive. I boot from the acronis boot disk. The acronis program names my cd drive "C", so when I restore my image it is changing My Image's "C" drive to "D" drive which is incorrect. How do I avoid this? How do I correctly restore this image with the hard drive being "C" and the cd drive being "D"? Thanks!

    It shouldn't matter, when you boot with the restored hard drive, Windows should make it C again.

    As Ralphie said, don't worry about it.

    Since you have a new hard drive which hasn't been partitioned or formatted, it is unreadable and isn't assigned a drive letter yet. The CD drive has a disk which can be read, so it gets the first drive letter (A and B are reserved for floppies) which is C.

    Restore the image to the new hard drive and be sure to restore either the entire disk or include the MBR in the restore. When you boot up, the hard drive is now readable and gets the C drive letter. Windows will then assign your CD to D.
