I have 4 partitions 0 Primary Active Windows XP 1 Primary Windows 7 2 Logical Documents 3 Logical Documents I have had no problems restoring only this time I had to perform a Firmware upgrade to my SSD, whiped my disk. I backed up all the partitions but not the MBR. I get an Error Prompt on the XP boot that the NTDLR is not found and also on the W7 side too. I used Paragon Backup 9 to restore because this is the Disk I had available, I do have HD Mgr 11. Does this matter? What is the correct procedure to restore the boot record. Is the Drive Letter important? When I restored the XP partition I assigned it the Letter C:, but the W7 I set it to none because when W7 Boots it also uses C: and the XP becomes the D: drive within Windows. Regards, Bernhard ps: I am trying with HD Mgr 11 insted of PB9... it is only twice as slow.
