I have been backing up with Acronis True Image for quite some time, but this is the first time I've actually needed to restore a failed drive. My backup images are on a different computer than the failed computer and the failed drive was the system "C" drive on the failed computer. I purchased another drive and connected it to the working computer using a USB to IDE adapter. I followed the prompts to restore to a previous backup and then installed the drive into the correct computer via IDE. I'm now getting a boot error. I think I might know what's happening, but I don't know how to fix it. During the restoration, Acronis asked me if I wanted to assign a drive letter. I didn't know the correct answer so I let it assign a drive letter, but not "C" because I already have a "C" drive in the computer I was using to restore this drive. It automatically assigned "L" to this drive. Now I'm not sure what to do. If I assign drive letter "C" while it's connected to the working system, I'm certain that it will do something bad. I'd rather not have to deal with the complexity of restoring the drive with a rescue disk unless I have to. Doing it on a working system seems so much easier. Do I run the restore again and select the option to not assign a drive letter? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Mandy P.S. Forgot to mention that I'm using True Image Home 11 on XP Professional NTFS.
