after restore 60gb C:\ to a formated 80gb HD all I get on boot-up is the SOBD.
Could we have a bit more information please?
What did you make an image of ? Which o/s, ? did you also image and restore the "system" partition ?
Did you restore to the same machine , or a different hardware environment?
1. Backed up only my XP C:\ Partition of my ASUS (A8N32-SLI delux) mobo, which has 4 other logical partitions.
2. What is this ".....and restore the "system" partition....."
3. Restored on my other Asus mobo (Asus P5K Premium) on a single partition formated with no OS 80gb HD, a file 29gb compressed from original 64gb.
4. Used "PARAGON HD MANAGER9.5 hdm95.exe" like this:-
The "system" partition is the one containing the boot critical files.
It is not necessarily the same partition the o/s itself is installed on.
From your screenshot - it looks as if the main o/s partition and the system partition are one and the same thing - that is not always the case.
I think the problem is that you restored the XP image to different hardware.
Did you try running the Paragon P2P adjust o/s to boot on new hardware.
That is what it is made for.
I am not sure if the Adjust o/s to boot on new hardware function is included with HDM9.5SE - it might be on the boot disc.
Hope it helps.
I looked for "P2P Adjust OS Wizard" & this below sugests is in the Paragon Hard Disk Manager 2010 which I downloaded but cannot find it.
Have you used it? .........nick
Yes I have used it - it's excellent.
How do you mean you couldn't find it ?
It is on the Express launcher , and on the Wizards Menu bar in the main interface, as well as under Virtualization in the left pane
It's also on the boot disc.
If you downloaded a trial version - I am not sure what is included in that.
I am sorry, its my fault.
am of the poor sort OAPs.
Not sure what you mean by that.
I'm afraid it's not on the PM2010 Free edition.
It may be on the trial version of Drive Backup Pro./Partition Manager Pro./Hard Disk Manager Pro.
It might be on another free product - I know they recently gave away Virtualization Manager Personal 2009 - it's definitely on that.
(Don't be put off by the 2009 tag - it works great).
OK S1W2 thanx a lot, that is not available now, I'll give it a rest now & think of something in the future.
