    I backup my C drive weekly and have seceral backups.

    My C drive which is a SATA drive crashed so I took my
    empty D drive (SATA) and made it my primary drive by reversing the
    cables at the end of the drive.

    I then did a successful restore of my latest backup
    to that drive and attempted a reboot.

    The system will not boot.

    Do I have to format the new drive as a System drive before
    i do the restore in order for the drive to be recognized
    as a boot device?

    Thanks

    As long as TI did the Restore process, there was no need to format the drive first. What error message do you get, there is usually one?

    In making your backups, when you selected your C drive, did you make sure the check mark was in the box next to the drive name and not just the partition?

    Unfortunatley I did not write down the error message.

    I do know however that the box for the C drive was checked
    and the restore took 58 minutes.

    I ran into this exact same problem once before when trying
    to restore another SATA drive.

    I have never had this problem restoring a standard IDE drive.

    I have already started a manul recovery of my system so I can't try
    the restore again to get the message.

    If I get another SATA drive I will attemt a restore and get the error
    message.

    The Following is the message I get when restoring an image
    to a SATA drive;

    "Windows could not start because of a computer hardware configuration problem.

    Could not read from selected boot disk. Check boot path and selected hardware.

    Please check the windows documentation about hardware disk configuration and your hardware reference manuals for additional information."
