ATI2009 v9796, XP-PRO SP-3 I want to perform the final “test” of restoring. I have installed a second internal HD in my Dell Inspiron desktop. This second drive is the same make, model, and size (Samsung HD502IJ 500GB) as the original drive purchased with the computer. Both drives are NTFS and the spare internal HD is presently empty. Up to this point, I have created a rescue CD, performed several manual FULL backups to an external USB2.0 HD using the rescue disk, validated the backup with the rescue disk, restored single files, and worked my way through a complete FULL restore to the new empty drive up to the PROCEED button. I have unique names for the drives so I know I’m aiming for the blank one. So far all is well but not quite ready to press the PROCEED button yet. Questions: 1. When doing the backups, I’ve always selected “My Computer”. In the restore process, is the correct choice Disk 1 which includes the OS (C) and MBR/Track 0 or should I restore simply the OS (C) (read a few messages on this but still confused)? 2. Assuming the restore goes well, now I’ll have two internal drives with OS (C) installed on each. Is this going to confuse Windows? 3. Once the restore is complete and the rescue CD removed, the computer will start booting right away. Which drive will Windows boot from? How do I select the spare drive to boot with to see if the restore worked? 4. What are some other gremlins am I overlooking?
